Suburban North Texas Emergency Kit

A Listmania! list by Ryan P Schlickeisen (Lewisville, TX)
The list author says: "I've been interested in emergency preparedness for a while, mostly from a sort of apocalyptic fantasy perspective. Unfortunately preparing for the worst case scenario won't necessarily prepare you for real emergencies. The best designed kit will be one that realistically represents your actual location and the situations you may find yourself in. City dwellers won't benefit as much from a animal trap as a crowbar and those in Tornado Alley will have different needs than those in earthquake-prone California. Despite many detractors, the government preparedness site actually provides a good jumping off point for most emergency kits."
