I am hoping for the best, and preparing for the worst. I have created a H1N1 emergency kit that includes a 2 weeks supply of food and water, cold medicines and fever reducers, Gatorade, hand sanitizer and a T-5000 respirator mask.

Man if we HAVE to leave our homes during this H1N1 what a bummer!!

I there a reason you think we will have to leave our homes?

I too am making a Go Bag but only for tornado, flood, fire or the end of the world and we need to get to the mountains.

Gee, it will really need to be an extreme good reason for me to leave my home.
Always Be Prepared

My emergency kit is for the event that I can't leave my home.  By keeping enough food, water, and medicine, I will be able to protect myself and my family.

Is th T5000 the one that has the valve on it?  I heard that the ones with the valve can cause you to infect those around you if they don't have a mask.

Yes it has a exhalation valve that makes it easier to breathe.  I haven't heard that they help spread infection, I will look in to it.

Sounds like you have everything covered.  Great job.  Hopefully you will not have to use your emergency kit, but you were wise to organize it ahead of time, before those items went flying off the shelf in your area of town.http***************

Here are instructions from consumer reports for your Swine Flu Survival Kit:

In case the second wave of swine flu is severe enough to warrant home confinement, consumers should pack an emergency kit in advance. You will need:

*A two-week supply of food and water.
*Fever reducers, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen.
*Cough and cold medications containing chlorpheniramine, diphenhydramine, oxymetazoline, and pseudoephedrine and lozenges with dyclonine, glycerin, or honey can help ease symptoms.
*Electrolyte drinks, such as Gatorade or Powerade, to keep you hydrated.
*Hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol, such as Purell, to kill viruses when soap and water aren't available.
*Surgical masks with an FDA rating of at least N-95 to help prevent spreading the flu. Masks need to be replaced often and disposed of after use. Shocked

angel, something I have come to realize about protecting my home, since I would SIP is the possession and use of a firearm. Took a long time for me to get here and now that I have learned the fundamentals, it is a natural. If you hate this idea, learn archery or something else. Having a big dog is also good.D
