Once you have the essentials covered, add personal hygiene and sanitation items to the kit — large trash bags and cans, toilet paper and household liquid chlorine laundry bleach. With spring break travel season in full swing, I’m sure many of you have flights and road trips planned in the near future.
Here’s what to pack your own emergency travel kit for your own family, especially if you have little ones. Honest Sunscreen. I also love the Honest sunscreen, and it is small enough to travel easily. Boiron Oscillococcinum. Besides taking a supplement with immunity boosters for a few weeks leading up to our trip, I also always pack this homeopathic cold and flu aid (for family members two and up), just in case. I bring this emergency kit in my carry-on for plane access (though I rarely need it) and put in any medication anyone may be taking and traveling with at the time (like thyroid medicine, birth control pills, etc.). Living in Los Angeles with her talented actor husband Jonathan and toddler son Charlie, Chandra blogs daily at Oh Lovely Day, sharing inspiration for wedding, home, and child.
Ok, I have been in enough weird random situations to know that preparedness is half the battle. This is great, I love the list you compiled for what to put in the emergency kit, it has everything and more than I would consider! I live in Austin, Texas so we get EXTREMELY hot weather (up to 110 F in summer) and during fall winter months we get what I consider to be pretty cold!
I really would like to put together this kit for my car, I absolutely love being prepared for anything! Thanks Kellie!That is an excellent question… why didn’t I include that information?

The California Emergency Management Agency advises that the first 72 hours after a disaster are critical.
Your kit should be easily accessible and have enough supplies for you, your family and pets to survive for at least three days. The American Red Cross advises using 16 drops of bleach per gallon to sterilize any water that’s not bottled.

The American Red Cross distributes an iPhone app called Shelter View, for finding out when and where shelters have been opened in your area during disasters. I just recently traveled (and survived) a cross country trip with two five hour flights with my family, including two boys (ages four and a half years and nine months).
Since we live in Los Angeles and don’t often deal with bugs that bite, this is a must for both me and my kids when we travel to more bug-filled locales.
I used to have to take a Tylenol or Advil PM to sleep every night, and now I just drink water mixed with this and fall asleep and stay asleep, without any medicine! Just buy a new cheap one for travel so that it can be used for any family member if necessary and hasn’t already been used by the baby rectally, and get one with probe covers. I always travel with bandages, anti-bacterial ointment, and 1% hydrocortisone for any boo boos, bug bites, etc. You should always carry your medication on your flight with you in case of lost checked luggage.
When she's not writing, Chandra is treasure hunting at flea markets for her home and event rental company Gilded Rentals, being a lawyer and helping other bloggers with her new venture Blogger Law, and being a mom to a very active 3 year old. I divided items into like groups by putting them in tiny craft baggies and labeling them, it helps you find things quickly without rummaging through tons of stuff.
Check out my post on a very neat product that will help you always be prepared without any effort! I have a really basic emergency kit in my car, but it has more items for winter (snow shovel, blankets, AC converter, flashlights) and this might be something to help add to that. Yes, I may be overly paranoid or something *grin*… I keep those types of items, as well as overnight items in a second bag, which I will be sure to share at some time! The only thing is, how do you protect the temperature sensitive products such as medications & wipes etc. Nothing in the negative but it gets as low as 28 degrees, enough to mess with certain products!
If you have any ideas for protecting temperature sensitive products in the kit, please do share!

The California Emergency Management Agency breaks down kits into: essentials, sanitation, safety and comfort, cooking and tools and supplies.

I prepared us in case of any minor emergency I could think of, and I think doing so helped me tremendously in the stress department.
Oh, and I also keep copies of my kids’ birth certificates with me when we travel, just in case. Wild and MacGyver, I’ve come up with a few kits I hope will help if anything unexpected occurs. Baggies are also a good idea for waterproofing, if your kit gets wet or something moisture rich decides to burst, you won’t have drowned your entire kit rendering it a useless mess.
I also have a different set of items in my husbands kit, which I will be sure to share here on the blog. Just make sure to bring the proper pain reliever for your child’s age range and the corresponding dosage instructions and medicine dispenser. And I was totally skeptical at first and don’t think oils should replace other medicine and treatments altogether, but I do think they help and can be a wonderful way to try a natural remedy first.
Review certain basic emergency procedures from time to time; know CPR, know the signs of stroke or heart attack, know what to do in a natural disaster, keep a booklet with emergency basics handy. I have the larger container at home, but these travel packets come in really handy when traveling.
I hope to inspire you to make your house beautiful, organized, and a great place to grow and love! In fact I couldn’t even speak to the 911 dispatcher until I swirled water in my mouth to get the glass out. Also, I would imagine keeping a spare pair of contact lenses would be affected by extreme heat. The solution is thankfully pretty simple… shop in the camping gear section of your store.
One thing I learned while on this trip is that allergy medicine for kids is good to have on hand too. Here in Michigan it gets cold and the water would freeze, so this year I am going to make sure I have a jug of unfrozen water with me all the time. Items commercially packaged for emergency preparedness or camping trips come in sturdy individual packaging that will withstand most extremes thrown at it.
I still store items like my chapstick and emergency contacts, but they are reinforced in baggies and get used fairly frequently, plus I rotate them out each season. Sometimes it’s the careful choices, such as a tube of Petroleum jelly rather than a stick of chapstick. Other items require a little bit of attention; store already packaged wipes in an additional baggie or a plastic canister, store non-prepackaged medication in a tin pill vial that contains the reinforced plastic insert (I blogged about my key ring pill vial), and change out before expiration.
