September is National Preparedness Month, reminding Americans of the importance of taking steps to prepare for emergencies before disasters happen. From severe weather events to earthquakes and even terrorist attacks, being able to stay safe and avoid hazards begins with carefully planning ahead, and a major element of any emergency preparedness plan is a reliable, ready preparedness kit.
What should you put in an emergency preparedness kit? The Department of Homeland Security’s Ready.gov program suggests building a kit that includes food, water, and supplies sufficient for at least 72 hours. Also, consider the possibility that basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage and telephones may be unavailable for several days during disasters, and your supplies should contain items to help you manage during these periods if necessary.
The NRAstore understands the importance of readiness in the face of hazards, and offers a variety of preparedness kit essentials for you to build your very own emergency bag. Best of all, every purchase at the NRA Store helps support the National Rifle Association.
Start your preparedness checklist with these supplies:
Whether you’re involved in a temporary power outage, a day’s hike, an extended camping trip, or a catastrophic grid collapse, your food supply is of the utmost importance. Individual, four-serving foil packets provide vital nutrition with minimum weight and maximum efficiency. Storage is easy – we include 56 freeze-dried breakfast and entrée servings in a durable, stackable 4 gallon plastic bucket that can help to preserve your food supply for up to 25 years. Just add boiling water, and you’ll feed one person two servings per day for a month (or a family of four two servings per day for a week.) Includes an NRA exclusive: a false “paint” label intended to divert attention away from your food supply. Made in USA.
Handheld water filters are a great short term solution for one person. But, if catastrophe really strikes, you and your family will need a filter that will get you through the long haul. Our Portable Water Filter Kit is designed to be used with two food-grade stackable containers to provide 30-35 gallons of clean water per day. Its 0.2 micron filtration efficiency removes 99.999% of bacteria, and reduces viruses. Also removes Fluoride, Arsenic and other harmful chemicals, including MCHM. The ceramic filter is silver impregnated to prohibit bacteria growth and can be cleaned more than 100 times for long-term use. The unlimited shelf life means this is the last filter you’ll ever need. It works great with any food-grade, stackable buckets, or try it with our Critical Food Supply buckets (sold below)for the ultimate survival stockpile. Kit includes: 4” x 4” water filter, filter sock, spigot kit, rubber band and instructions. Drill and other household tools required for assembly. Buckets not included. Made in USA.
