Default Here are some SHTF (emergency kit) checklists in PDF. What do you think?

I have a few different versions of different checklists. This one in particular was made up to target beginners and intermediates in our local area. We give these out during consultations and also use them as handouts.

Some PDF checklists include:
*Home Emergency Kit Checklist
*72 Hour (BOB) Kit Checklist
*Bandana and Para Cord Uses
*Car Emergency Kit Checklist
*First Aid Kit Checklist (Individual and Family)
*GHB Checklist
*INCH Bag Checklist

So what do you think? What did I miss and what should I change?

Here's the link to the PDF:

Looks like a great start. I'm not too sure if this is just a 'have all this stuff' list or a bug out bag list. If a bug out bag, then the camping chair would be too bulky and heavy for a bug out bag.


Mention non-cotton clothing since this is bugging out (I'm assuming due to the camping stuff).

Off the top of my head, you may want to include:
flares
extra batteries for all radios/flashlights/etc
food items (bars or life boat rations, things that will last)
Bandannas (orange for signaling and others for multiple uses).
Fresnel magnifier as alternative for firestarting
signaling mirror
whistle (they even have the ones with a waterproof container handle - good for matches)
basic hand tools - perhaps specify multi-tool?
deck of cards (for bordom and sanity)

Looks like you need a Google account to look at the doc. Anywhere you could post it for us to see?

This is a basic "Where do I start" checklist targeted to the beginner. We have been having an increase in "beginner interest" lately. However this is not intended as an "everything you need" list.

We do have different checklists for backpacking, BOB, INCH, GHB, First Aid, Etc.

Basic camping gear is listed in this checklist in case you are still able to occupy your property but not the structure due to fire, earthquake etc.

Adding a separate line for spare batteries seems like a good idea. As long as I can keep the list contained to a single page, I'll add as many items as I can.

Thanks for your input!

Who knows of a good (free) place to host PDF files? Our website has a file size limit and a lot of the checklists exceed that.

Yes we did! Thank you. Working on modifications now. I think I'll start adding the completed PDF's to post #1 and that way people can download them for their own use. Most of our checklists also have an area to add your own notes if needed. I'll also upload our generic emergency checklist which has the radio station section blank so that you can add your own local stations.

I think this is too much stuff as I personally subscribe to the 10 pound backpack theory but if I was going to add two things I think are important would be a pocket field survival guide and a small foraging guide for local plants.

For me my girlfriend is a walking field survival expert so she gets to come along too.

Talking about the 72 hour BOB kit right? 10 pounds of gear to last 3 days might be a difficult task to accomplish. I Imagine you could be selective with the item list if you needed/wanted to be.

Adding a wild edible plant guide is a good idea. Thank you! Adding a field survival guide may be more applicable to a home kit or an INCH bag?

Suggestions/comments?

Thanks again to everyone for their help!

I have a few of these guides:
Edible Wild Plants - An introduction to familiar North American species by Waterford Press.

ISBN: 158355127-1

It's small and compact and it also lists poisonous plants.

Well for me personally my pack is filled with nice to haves I could ditch all of it and not suffer to much - The mild climate, abundant sources of fresh water, shelter and food are substantial here in CA. The guides ultimately are for reference as there are many neat tricks and it's hard to keep remembering them all. But all of them I focus on are utilizing whats available naturally. The foraging guide is simply because there are so many plants to choose from and some of them can be similar but quite dangerous to consume. One of the pieces of my kit I really like is my swiss ranger stove kit it's super light and works very well for cooking or boiling water.

Later this year I am taking a trial of fire survival course in a not so hospitable place. And there will be no packs allowed just to drive the point home for me personally.

Also clothing is another aspect that should be focused on - I really like polyblend track type gear because it's durable and you can wear it for extended periods and its easy to clean. Shoes right now are something I am looking into like the vibram and minimus - I would love to go barefoot but the terrain is such where I live I don't think you can move fast enough with it.

Thats a nice setup except for the 15oz capacity and the cork stopper. both kill it for me.

I have the Nalgene 38oz SS bottles. Just wish there was a noce stove mod for those...

10lb pack...would be nice if it were possible for the non-Tom Brown & Ray Mears of us

Can you post your 10lb pack list with item details and pics? Maybe we could learn something from your kit and the OP could base an alternate list from...

For the first aid checklist, I was thinking of separating the list into two sections. First section being personal or single person list and the second section being a group or family list of items.

My idea is that this would allow someone to look at a single piece of paper and easily determine what they might need for their own personal first aid kit as well as what they might need for a family or group first aid kit.

I'm wondering though, if I should list duplicates that are contained in both lists?

The swim suits main function in a 3 day BOB would be for bathing/showering purposes. They're light and they usually dry pretty quickly.

You may be in a position where showering/bathing with privacy is just not an option.

If you are away from home and need to use public or shelter facilities, some comfort/modesty/privacy may be gained by bathing/showering in a swim suit. Of course, this may apply more to women rather than men. Or maybe you'll find yourself having to bathe in a stream, river, lake etc.

Makes a lot of sense. I had not thought of it previously.

Thanks GS.

How many of you have hiked with a heavy bag? Make sure you know what you're getting in to. A good start, easy to just purchase, is one of those 72 hour emergency bags you can find on Amazon.

My short list:
cord
knife
fire starting kit
metal container
tarp

With the above items you can make shelters, keep yourself warm and dry, trap, gut, prep and cook small game, and collect and clean water. To this minimal list I would add a first aid kit and a good book on survival. Also make sure to prepare a plan ahead of time - know where to go and what resources will be there for you.

This bag wouldn't provide comfortable living, but it should help you survive.
