Basic Two Person Earthquake Kit

If you live in earthquake country, you need to be prepared for the worst. Keep in mind that earthquakes aren’t just limited to the West Coast – the New Madrid fault line, for example, goes right through Appalachia. Earthquakes are devastating to the local infrastructure, and most severe earthquakes will result in gas, power, and water systems being knocked out. Earthquakes are also damaging to your home, and thus require some special pre-planning if you want to survive. We’ve put together a great earthquake kit that supplies you with most everything you need to stay ready. Click on the items below directly from this sheet, and the link will take you right to our website, where you can order the goods directly. Quantities listed are for two adults.


Water is essential to life, and without it, you’re not going to survive for very long. Here’s what you need:

Katadyn Vario Microfilter

In the immediate aftermath of an earthquake, you’re going to need a small, portable, yet powerful method of filtering potentially contaminated water. The Katadyn Vario is the perfect tool for that job!

Bug Out

After an earthquake, you may not necessarily be able to stick around due to the devastation caused. If you have to go on the move, you’ll want a specially designed kit to keep you supplied:

Guardian Elite Earthquake Survival Kit

This kit contains food and water for 72 hours, and addresses critical needs after an earthquake like sanitation and hygiene. It also includes some tools, which are essential in the rubble aftermath of an earthquake. Lastly, it packs some dust masks to keep your airway free of the airborne pollutants that occur after an earthquake.

Power Generation

You’re going to need a method of generating power after an earthquake to charge vital devices like cell phones, tablets, and laptop computers that should contain a critical store of important documents and survival information.

Duracell 600 Watt Power Pack

The Duracell 600 watt power pack is an excellent power on the go solution. Simply keep it charged when not in use, then grab it when you need it. It will pump out 600 watts of power for hours – enough to keep your electronic devices going. The best part is, you can operate this power pack in places where you can’t run a generator – inside your home.

18 LED Headlamp

This powerful headlamp runs on three AAA batteries and you can wear it on your head while digging through rubble or searching for loved ones.


You need to know what’s going on during a disaster:

Kaito KA500 Voyager Solar Radio

This little wonder is a shortwave radio with built in NOAA weather alert. It never needs batteries, and is powered via solar power or hand crank. Perfect for keeping you up to speed.


Although the basic earthquake kit above includes 72 hours worth of food, the ability to get more food after a tornado could be greatly delayed. We recommend stocking up:
