WHAT EMERGENCY SUPPLIES DO I NEED FOR AN EARTHQUAKE?

What emergency supplies do I need for an earthquake?

I believe that many people will not prepare too many emergency products before encountering natural disasters such as earthquakes, because we have lived in a peaceful era for too long, and many people have no such sense of urgency, but if it does happen Earthquakes and other natural disasters, what should be prepared in advance can come in handy in the event of an earthquake? Think about the earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that just happened in Japan:

Tonga’s submarine volcano erupts in 2022
Japan’s Sakurajima volcano erupts in 2022
Earthquakes & volcano erupts in the Philippines in 2022

The names of many innocent civilians have been taken away by these natural disasters.

So as we have not encountered a sudden natural disaster, what products do we need to prepare? Let’s take a look at the following list (Thank you USGS.GOV )。Please note that because the supplies are prepared in advance, they generally need to comply with the EDC principle, that is, it is best to carry these supplies with you. After all, natural and man-made disasters may happen at any time:

 

  • Fire machine / Lighter : Fire machine can bring you instant energy and fire, fire is very necessary at any time, especially in earthquakes, trapped due to landslides, fire can be used for lighting at this time to attract others’ attention and cooking food.

    Compared with traditional liquefied butane lighters, there are liquid leakage and flammable unsafety. I especially respect the current electronic lighters.

    The obvious use would be to start a fire for whatever reason. If you have enough room in your bag or purse, keep two lighters… just in case.
