If an emergency were to hit — say a tornado, hurricane, or zombie apocalypse — are your home and family prepared?
For most people, myself included, the answer is probably no.
To me, the true test of preparedness lies in organization: If you couldn’t reach your emergency supplies in a split second or the pitch dark, then you’re not prepared.
Although we’ve pictured only a few samples of each supply, you should keep more than enough to last you for many days; in fact, FEMA suggests having a three-day emergency supply on hand.

To prepare your home for an emergency, a set of plastic drawers is perfect. Not only is it transportable in case of evacuation, but each drawer can be sorted and labeled. When an emergency hits, you'll know exactly where to go.
Drawer Number One: Car/Travel
In case you ever need to evacuate your car or home, you'll want to have these items ready. I've actually removed this drawer from my cart and keep it stored in my trunk.
Drawer Number Two: Babies/Children
If you have any small children or grandchildren, it's a good idea to keep extra supplies on hand. These should be tailored with any specific medications or comfort items your child may need.
Drawer Number Three: Pets
Your furry or feathered loved ones need to be prepared, too! As with the drawer for children, your supply kit should be tailored to the individual needs of your pets.
Drawer Number Four: Power Outage
In case your electricity goes out and you don't have a generator, it's important to keep an extensive supply of candles, flashlights, batteries, and camping lanterns.
