ARE YOU READY??
In Kenpo we prepare to be ready for the unexpected. Below is the link to FEMA's page  where they have posted a Disaster Supplies Check List. Below I copied the different catagories.

Interesting is that the list does not mention items for defending yourselves. My advice is if you choose to legally obtain a weapon for self defense purposes, then you have an obligation to learn how to use the weapon properly and learn how to properly maintain it.

This check list also does not mention money or fuel. Depending on the type of emergency, there may not be electricity which means gas pumps and ATM's will not work. So have enough full gas cans on hand that you can fill your tank and leave if needed. [add Stabil, a gas perservative to the gas can with the fuel, it can be purchased at Walmart and it keeps gas good for 1 yr.]

Also, have some cash locked away so you won't be caught short if ATM's are down.

The following list is to help you determine what to include in your disaster supplies kit that will meet your family’s needs.
