72 Hour Emergency Kit for Natural Disasters. This is the 72 Hour Emergency Kit food and water edition in a series I am starting. Things in your 72 Hour Emergency Kit should be simple, and when making this kit I strived to do that. 72 hour emergency kits for natural disasters should contain at least 2 gallons of water for each person and food close to 2,000 calories a day. Remeber that your 72 hour emergency kit should contain a good amount of sodium along with that water to rehydrate as sodium is needed as a companion to water in rehydration. There are two kits here the simple and cheap on that is around that has pros of being cheap and giving more flavor options. Then their the the other option of having lunch and diner mountain house meals which have pros of being light weight and much easier for clean up and the con of being twice as much money.
