At least three days' worth of water.
Lots and lots of Purell.
Copies of all important personal documents — and something to store them in — in case you need to leave your home.
A stockpile of any medications you may need.
A backup generator, if you live in a suburban or rural area.
A toolbox filled with some basic tools.
A First Aid book.
Anything someone who depends on you — like a baby or a sick relative — might need.
And don't forget about your pets!
