10 Items Your Home Emergency Kit Needs

Emergencies and disasters can happen at any time, which means that preparedness is our best defence. Every home in Canada should have a home emergency kit built for its residents, as well as a predetermined plan in place in case of emergencies. While large-scale disasters are what come to mind, these kits can be used in various situations. They may be the first point of contact for a medical emergency in the home or taken on risky outdoor activities such as camping and hiking. With this in mind, here are ten items that are necessary to anyone’s emergency kit.

1) FOOD AND WATER

Emergency Food & Water Rations

The first and most important of essentials are clean water and food. The government of Canada recommends 2L of water per person and potentially water purification tablets. As for food, non-perishables are ideal, canned foods, energy bars, etc. Food and water in emergency kits should be replaced yearly.

2) A MULTI-TOOL

Multi-Function Camp Knife

Whether it’s for opening the canned food, cutting bandages, or opening battery packs, multitools are essential for emergencies. There are many different styles, and it is easy to find one that works best for you and your household.

3) A SURVIVAL CANDLE AND WATERPROOF MATCHES

In case of power outages, temporary sources of heat and light are essential. These are also particularly useful for hiking/camping trips. Survival candles are designed to last for extended periods of time, and matches should be waterproof to avoid them being unusable in case of water damage.

4) FIRST AID BASICS

Basic First Aid Kit

A first-aid kit is an essential item for any household and can be stored within an emergency kit. First-aid kits typically include bandages of different sizes and shapes, instant ice packs, antiseptic wipes/spray, a thermometer, basic pain medication, and perhaps a naloxone kit.

5) AN EMERGENCY BLANKET

Emergency Blanket

Often coming with more extensive first-aid kits, emergency blankets can be used in a variety of situations. Climate, season, and location are important variables to consider when assembling your emergency kit.

6) FLASHLIGHT, RADIO, AND BATTERIES

Solar & Crank – Flashlight/Radio/Cellphone Charger

These items being battery powered is important, as is including extra batteries. Flashlights can be used in case of power outages, and radios can be used for listening to emergency broadcasts and contacting others.

7) A WHISTLE

Especially useful to pack for outdoor activities, whistles can be used in emergencies when separated from others.

8) TOILETRIES

Often left out of emergency kits, basics such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet paper, and sanitary products will be of great value in emergency situations. Anything that you use on a daily basis should be considered for a spot in an emergency kit.

9) A LIST OF EMERGENCY CONTACTS

This will be specific to each area and household and can easily be compiled yourself. Emergency numbers can include police departments, poison control, crisis intervention, or any contacts you personally have.

10) ANY SPECIFIC MEDICATIONS

Specific needs can vary based on the person, and it’s important to accommodate for allergies or prescriptions. This includes any items such as an inhaler, epi-pen, insulin, infant formula, equipment for people with disabilities, equipment for a service animal, or extra doses of any medication needed. Many of these items will be specific to the individual or household and can be altered accordingly. GetMyKit.ca offers a wide range of products to accommodate for all sorts of people and events.
