Create Your Own Emergency Document Kit

Create your own Emergency Document Kit! View the complete Amazon list and choose one item from each category to fit your individual needs. Three items are listed for your convenience and personal preference, but you only need one item from each category!


The first thing you’ll need is a fire-proof container to store all your documents in a safe, organized, and convenient manner. All of the bags chosen have a carry strap to keep your hands free to grab a loved one, pet, or special item if you need to leave the house in a hurry.


Use these fireproof bags to store small items within your large fireproof case. Great for jewelry, passports, USB drives, or other small items you want to be protected!


Use expandable folders to create a packet for everyone in your home, then place it in your fireproof container. You’ll want three – one for the originals, and two more for copies that you can give to people you trust. Depending on your needs, you can choose either a 13- or 25-divider option. (Tip: The 13 folder option is perfect for young adults just starting out!)


This password book stores up to 330 passwords in the event that you forget or need to access your accounts on a different computer or laptop then you normally use. Another option is to use LastPass, a online password manager that makes online browsing more secure. Click here to sign up for free!


A USB drive will allow you to scan and store digital copies of your documents in a secure location in the event you lose or can’t access physical copies. Choose a 32GB drive for a smaller option or 128GB for more space. Choose whatever size you need – you will normally need larger than you think!
