How To Make A Pelican Preparedness Kit

How To Make A Pelican Preparedness Kit

Just a few short months ago, it would have been difficult to imagine that our nation, let alone the entire world, would be facing an epic threat like the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  If you do not already have an emergency preparedness kit, now is the perfect time to create one.  Pelican cases have long been trusted by first responders because they are durable, strong, crushproof, dustproof, and water proof.  That is why a Pelican case is the perfect case to hold the items of your preparedness kit.  We like the Pelican 1610 case because it is large enough to hold these items but small enough carry and it has wheels for easy transport.  Here is a list of items that are essential for every emergency preparedness kit.


  • WATER:  1 gallon per day, enough for a 3 day evacuation
  • FOOD:  3 day supply of non-perishable food
  • KNIFE or MULTI-TOOL: For cutting and repairs
  • FLASHLIGHT & BATTERIES:  We like the Pelican 3410PLM because it is powerful, glows in the dark, has a clip and magnet for easy mounting, and has an articulating head.
  • EMERGENCY RADIO:  NOAA Weather Radio
  • FIRST AID & MEDICATION:  First Aid kit for mending injuries, and a 7 day supply of medications.
  • WHISTLE:  A whistle to signal for help
  • IDENTIFICATION:  Copies of personal documents like medical records, proof of address, and insurance policies.
  • SANITATION:  Alcohol based sanitizer
  • CELL PHONE & CHARGER: Be sure to include not only your charger but a battery backup.  We like the Pelican Go Charger Case.
  • MONEY:  Extra stash of cash and coins
  • EMERGENCY BLANKET:  For extra warmth
  • MAP:  State and local maps for planning escape routes
  • BABY SUPPLIES:  If applicable, formula, wipes, and diapers
  • TOILET PAPER:  Always have some TP
