I think that every one should be prepared, for some unknown event. you can stock up on everything that you may consider a necessity, but a person could go batty trying to plan for every scenario. Food, water clothes, heat ,shelter ,guns & ammo I like to think that I am pretty well prepared. But I figure a lot of the stuff will be laying out in the streets for the taking. But one last thing is that since your actively thinking and trying to be prepared with your kits ,you all will be be way better off then all the people that are oblivious.
