Suggested basic first-aid supplies for 72-hour kit

The objective of the 72-Hour Emergency Preparedness Kit is to have, previously assembled and placed in one location, all of those essential items you and your family will need during a 72-hour time period following an emergency. When an emergency occurs you
will probably not have the luxury of going around the house gathering up needed items, especially if you have to evacuate your home on short notice.
