We're going to add a few things this week to our 72-hour kits. First of all, add a set of scriptures. It could be just a Bible, just a Book of Mormon, or both. They don't need to be really nice, leather bound copies. Just the soft cover books will do.
Also for your 72-hour kits, add a folder of personal documents. In fact, you may want to have two copies of these documents: one in mom's kit, and one in dad's. These folders should contain copies of birth/marriage certificates, wills, passports, vaccination records, credit card information, insurance policy numbers, and any other documents that are important to you. Many people don't feel comfortable storing these documents in their 72-hour kits. That's fine; keep them in a safe place for now (filing cabinet or wherever), but just make a note somewhere on your backpack (or whatever you use) to remind you to grab the documents before you leave in an emergency.
How is your three month supply coming along? Don't forget to store at least 2 weeks of water per person. Also, you should store some multivitamins as part of your food storage. Create a menu plan so that you know exactly what foods you need to store. Want a ready-made menu plan and shopping list for your entire three month supply? Read about our new e-book!
