We have included the famous Dynamo Powered flashlight – AM-FM radio. This is the kit I use when I travel. It goes everywhere I am. The pack has extra room in it for additional items ( I carry some cookies, vitamins, extra water etc. as needed for the trip I am on at the time. It is very flexible. Add in items you want as needed ) Extra food and water could turn this 72 hr kit into a 1-2 week kit. This kit can be used for many emergencies such as a Earthquake kit, Hurricane Kit, Tornado Kit, or most any emergency.

Things You Need To Do and Be aware of with your 72 hour kit.
1. Water: You have water packets with a shelf life of 5 years Coast Guard Approved. We have included an empty canteen for water that you supply. ( fill it with your favorite water ) Change this water at least every three months to keep it fresh. 1-2 times a year wash this canteen out with soap and water.
2. If you plan to travel by commercial airlines and desire to take this kit with you may want to put it into a box and ship it as luggage since some of the items will probably not go through security.
3. Please open up your kit on the floor or a big table and take everything out of it so that you can see what is there and to become somewhat familiar with the different items and where they are located.
Preparedness prevents panic.
