17 Things For Pandemic Survival that You Probably Forgot to Include in Your Medical Kit

In Prepping and Preparedness by M.D. Creekmore

The following list is for items that most people forget to include in their basic first aid kits and supplies. If you’re worried about an outbreak like the current Ebola outbreak hitting the U.S. in the near future (you probably should be) then adding the products on this list should be your top priority right now.

Keep in mind that I’m not including basic first-aid items or meds in this list, because most of you already have a stockpile of those necessities on hand.

  1. Plenty of Hand sanitizer and soap – wash hands thoroughly with hot water and regular or anti-bacterial soap, then use hand sanitizer.
  2. Disposable thermometers
  3. N95 HEPA (High-efficiency particulate air filter) masks
  4. Heavy 4 – 6 mill clear plastic for building quarantine areas
  5. Duct Tape (for putting plastic up)
  6. Staple Gun and Staples (for putting plastic up)
  7. Vent fan for negative airflow into the quarantine areas –  an air filtering system would be great but probably not possible for most. Ducting can be installed to route contaminated air to someplace safe.
  8. Medical Grade Gloves
  9. Lysol Professional Quaternary Disinfectant Cleaner Concentrate
  10. Plenty of Bleach
  11. Spray bottles for bleach and/or other disinfectant solutions
  12. Large washbasins for washing and disinfection
  13. Bed coverings (Fluid Protective)
  14. Biohazard Waste Disposable Bags
  15. Body Bags
  16. Hydrated lime
  17. Large trash bags
