HANDBOOK

Stockpile List
Store a variety of basic supplies

If you ask three people what items you should stockpile for an emergency, you will get three different answers - most of it influenced by their own interests and perceived needs. The following list is no different, although it is as generic and as broad as possible.

Do not feel compelled that you absolutely, positively must have every single item listed here. Instead, use this list as a general guideline - a proverbial "string around the finger" to remind you not to overlook something.

Since you have done a thorough inventory of your home and personal belongings, you will find that you already have many of the following items on hand. That's good. Compare your inventory against this list and check-off any items you have. Doing this will reassure you and make you feel as if you are well on your way to dealing with a disaster...which indeed, you are.
