How long do Emergency Survival Kits last?
Most emergency packages have about 3 nights value of food because that is the time most crisis organizations estimate it will take in any disaster type before a rescue is made. Generally, even before you consume your food you can survive a few extra days without anything.
However personally, I believe that’s the bare minimal you’re going to need. There are some company’s that even promote packages with 2 weeks of freeze dried meals – which is significantly better.
Nevertheless, remember that with emergency backpacks, you do have to keep in mind how much you can physically carry.
Once you have your crisis survival package, store it inside a cool dry location that you can effortlessly get to (that is not obvious to everyone who comes walking via your area.) Many people even prefer to have crisis packages stored at the house, at work and in the car since you never know where you’ll be in a situation.
