Gear isn’t all you need to be prepared (you’ll want a plan, too), but it is super important.

You’ll want:

  1. Go Bags in case you need to evacuate
  2. A Stay Bag (aka an Emergency Kit) for sheltering in place
  3. Specific supplies to prepare for likely disasters
  4. Supplies stashed at places where you spend a lot of time (like under your bed, your office, or your side piece’s house)

To compile our gear recommendations, we compared item features and reviews to find the best options for people who want to get prepared without making it their entire personality.
