What's in your emergency kit?

Make sure you carry an emergency supply kit that is easily accessible. Suggested items your kit should contain: flashlights, batteries, rain ponchos, bug spray, a portable weather radio, first aid kit, non- perishable packaged or canned food, a manual can opener, blankets, prescription and non-prescription drugs, pet supplies (to include a photo of your pet if it should get separated from you), bottled water and any special items for infants, elderly or disabled family members. Customize the kit to your specific needs. What is in your kit? (RV 101-Facebook)

I hadn't thought of a specific emergency kit as I carry most of this stuff on the coach in various storage compartments...but it makes sense to have a specific emergency kit at home and on the road.

Road hazard triangles are required in some states if you are disabled on the road. They dont fine you for not having them until you are disabled and dont have them.
But, safety first! I have em

Any idea if cones are a "legal" substitute? I have 4 cones from "driving practice" days that I carry but would probably toss two and get some triangles since they lay flat. I'd keep 2 cause they're handy.

Triangles is the requirement. They are very bright and highly reflective. They come in a box of 3, and fold up. Box is about 5x5x20. Easy to store. About $20

I don't have blankets, but have a reflector blanket thing you can buy for backpacking.
I keep my stuff in a red backpack and there is enough backpackers' dehydrated food for 2 people for 3 days. Dog's bag is separate but close by. I also include, playing cards( for when bored out of gourd waiting on bad weather to clear) duct tape, Kleenex, small tube of clorox wipes, small glass bottle with dropper and clorox for water purifying, mess kit, and a printed out address book from outlook with the important contact numbers etc.as well as neighbors and family with their pictures inserted into the sleeves. I have 3 of these backpacks, one for each car and one for the Motor home. I live in tornado alley, the pics are for ID purposes if someone's in the hospital and they don't who it is, or need to stitch a face back up right.... I should get a roll of painters plastic and stick it in there too for makeshift debris shelter from radiation fallout in case the local nuclear plant ever blows.
