How to Make a 72 Hour Emergency Food Kit

Living in the Gulf Coast area we are always aware of potential danger of tropical storms and/or hurricanes.  Once a year our family prepares a 72 hour emergency kit for each person.  These kits should be easy to carry in case you need to evacuate.  Backpacks are a great way to have everything you need in one place. 

I've included a video from Food Storage Made Easy to help you prepare an emergency kit.  This video is  a guideline and should be customized to fit your taste and needs.
