A 96-hour kit is a portable, grab-and-go kit that covers many items from the categories below. Some items may carry over and add to your overall emergency supply. This kit should be tailored to each individual's needs. It is limited to portable items and kept in a pack or suitcase that can be carried or pulled by the person it was built for. Consider the climate and intended environment when selecting items.
A 96-hour kit includes the necessities to survive 4+ days in a major emergency situation such as a natural disaster. It may take several days or longer for help or relief to arrive. Your home is usually the best place to stay if possible, but depending on the severity of the situation, power may be out, gas leaks may be present, and you might need to leave the safety and comfort of your home.
