What your emergency kit should contain

Are you prepared?  Do you have a fully stocked emergency or disaster kit you can rely on to keep you going when the unexpected happens?  Together with a well stocked first aid kit (masks, gloves, disinfectant and torch) being prepared with food and water are the best things you can do to stay well during a natural disaster.  Recommendations are enough food and water on hand to last for two weeks. This means having a good store of food and water on hand at all times.

The Healthy Food Guide have put out a guide on: How to plan and shop for an emergency kit.  This includes:
