I do keep a backpack and dog pack (for Molly's food and water) as a grab-n-go bag. Plenty of food and water in the basement, and the trailer is usually ready-to-go. I have a container of supplies that the Red Cross recommends for disasters in the garage (leather gloves, duct tape, water turn off thingee, basic tools, etc).

Thinking about disasters always makes me think I have too many pets - unless I can stay in the house or drive away, I 'd have a hard time evacuating with a dog and 2 cats!

I've been thinking the same thing with 3 dogs and 3 cats!! sure would be a full camper! COZY! LOL!!! the cats would probably find themselves in the upper cabinets (by choice with the doors open of course) and the dogs and I with the rest of the place.

I keep a stock of necessities, coffee, water, sugar, salt, misc. foods, propane, gas (enough for a few weeks, for the generators, truck, etc.), blankets, shelters, enough supplies to keep S. Sauer and Mr. Browning usable, toothpaste, etc.

Like my neighbour BC Dave has mentioned. In a large emergency, it will be a YOYO situation. I don't think that any of our governments can act as fast as they would like to.

My truck is ex army and can survive EMP. I have a couple of bags filled with MREs, ammunition, clothing and some other supplies. 5 Jerry cans filled with diesel and one with gas for a tiny generator. I have small toolbox and a few select parts for my truck. My radio is on a quick connect, as is the CB. I have two cheap ones stored in a Faraday cage.

It takes about 7 minutes to load everything in my truck to head to my property in northern Wisconsin where I have more supplies, tools and fuel.

My parents worked for the feds, FEMA and various state agencies. They lack faith in the ability of the government to act in a timely fashion.
