The list author says: "I've listed the items in the order of importance. Water, Food, Communication, etc. So you'll see some essentials, and then farther down, similar items (e.g. water purification) that should serve as backups.

I can't imagine you're going to buy every single item, but if anything, use this as an opportunity to get more prepared today than you were yesterday.

Do you need all weather duct tape? Bungee cords? Maybe not. But if you have other things taken care of, it's not a dumb thing to grab and add to your bag.

The nice thing with Amazon is that you can see what I have here as a guide, and you can look for similar, but less expensive versions.

The most important thing is to just bite the bullet and get some of these items out of the way, YES itís a little bit of a hassle to do it, but itís really important to do a bit of preparation for things like Earthquakes or other disasters.

Itís safe to assume after a major disaster, you absolutely will NOT be able to access even the most basic civil services. There wonít be water or electricity. Youíll be on your own for food. You will not have easy access to medicine or first aid. Your ability to communicate will be nil.

Gas will be hard to get. I recommend you always fill up your car when the tank is only half empty. Not when itís on fumes.

Itís critical to be able to handle things on your own for AT LEAST 72 hours. But I would plan for a week.

I know some of the items seem redundant, but they are worth having. The longer you are without help or municipal services, the quicker you will be using things up.

An adequate amount of water to drink per day is 3 liters. Let's call it 3.7 liters, to be safe. That's one gallon. I recommend you grab 3 of the 2-gallon water bottles on my list and fill them up ASAP.

I strongly recommend you keep an extra 30 day supply of any medications you take regularly. Who knows what a hassle it'll be to get them refilled."

"I have not personally used this first aid kit, but you want to have a broad selection of items. This seems to have good basic things like bandages, gauze, antiseptic cream, etc.  So this one looked pretty good.  This is good, but you might want to get even bigger one, if you have family, etc.  I HIGHLY recommend you supplement this kit with some of the other first aid items on the list."
