For home or on the go, this kit includes most everything you need for a short term emergency which could include anything from a power outage to a major storm.
Just add more food and water to this kit if you want to prepare for something longer term.

Mayday Industries has been around for a while and knows what the most needed items are for an emergency.

The backpack is for easy storage and to carry your kit with you if you have to leave your refuge for whatever reason. Take your survival items with you.

As stated above, all this kit needs is a little more food and water and you are good for an extended emergency. How long does it usually take for rescue teams to arrive? It can vary from a few hours to several days and in some cases a couple of weeks. That’s why these kits have shelter and blankets.

Use the radio to get the latest available updates on your situation as reports come in. Use the camper stove for hot meals.

If you are home and expect a utility outage that might mean no toilets. Consider the Honey Bucket Deluxe Emergency Kits if that is more important to you.

We have grown fresh cold weather type vegetables as cold as 18F with nothing to heat them but the sun. They are attached to the side of the house which never freezes. Plug Read More
  • I Built My House for Extreme Weather

    I went to work in the family commercial construction company in the early 1980's and by the end of the decade had worked my way into the office as a project manager. Commercial construction is entirely different than residential construction. For one thing, everything is engineered - structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers all take a part in the design of commercial buildings. It wasn't long before I discovered the term "100 year storm". Many structural designs and mechanical designs were based on the 100 year storm (I'm over simplifying for the purpose of this article). Things like concrete foundation design and Read More
