In the event of an emergency you will need to store a three day backpack and one handheld CB radio in your vehicle.
One backpack for each person who normally rides in your vehicle.
My three day back pack contains the following:

Small trowel, for digging cat holes with
2 Bottles of water, and three gallons of water in the trunk

your children are at school when diaster strikes and you cannot reach them then they will have the necessary food and water
