The following list highlights the top items one needs to survive for the first 72 hours of an emergency. The list was arrived upon with regards to data that was collected non-profit alert organizations and governments:

1-Food MRE (Meals Ready to Eat), dried food and food bars are the core of all emergency kits found at home, in cars, and in the jungle. Whichever the emergency, anyone affected needs food to survive. The meals are suitable because they: stay for longer periods without going bad, are easy to prepare and also transport.

2-Water Reports from the Department of Homeland Security suggest that an average person requires a gallon for drinking and sanitation purposes every day. There are exceptions to this suggestion for several classes of people like children, the sick and nursing mothers who might need slightly more water and hence it is good practice to take this to consideration for emergency situations.

3-Emergency lights This is also essential for the emergency kit. Some of the basic uses of the emergency include: operating in the darkness of the night, reading and depression prevention by signaling emergency response teams for a rescue operation.

4-Communication for situations where one might find themselves stranded, news and weather updates from a radio, whether AM/FM, could be very important in helping determine the next decision to make.

5-A whistle and a mirror help in location identification for the rescue team.

6- Shelter Threats like wildfires, hurricanes, floods, war, and earthquakes would forcefully evict people from their homes or cars. It is good practice to have the most basic form of shelters like tents and rain jackets for bad weather.

7-Warmth Keeping warm is key more so for the people in areas with cold weather or situations where one might be stuck in the jungle. Extra body warmers or emergency blankets come in very handy, especially when sleeping through the cold night outside.

8-Survival tools Set of tools with multipurpose functions could be helpful for these situations. With the saying necessity is the mother of all invention, one might be surprised with the functionalities of the regular items.

9-Hygiene kit Immediately after the occurrence of an emergency or disaster and the basics (shelter and food) are in place, cleaning up helps in calming down and planning the next move by recollecting the mind. The cleaning up not only removes the visible dirt but also any infections.

10-First Aid Kit A fully functional first aid kit is a necessity for cars, homes and commercial centers. This is a requirement because for emergency situations it helps in treating victims that have suffered trauma and also curbing the spread of infection by treating minor injuries. The kits should at least contain; bandages, adhesive tape, cleaning towel, rolled gauze and basic drugs like painkillers and antibiotics.

11-Personal items They could include books and games that help in reducing the tension and frustration. Copies and extras of several items could be important just in case the original ones are destroyed: documents, cash and credit cards, passports, insurance covers, phones and their accessories, medications, clothes, and maps. There should be an attempt to put together the survival kit. If it is not applications, an online emergency kits option could be sought to supplement the personal items. Practical Emergency Kits have for the longest time been used to give families access to emergency supplies and also practical knowledge based on reliable research. We believe the best way to overcome fear is through knowledge.
