With scientists warning us that storms like Sandy will soon be the norm thanks to climate change, the Wire Cutter has put together a list of handy gear you should have on hand for your next emergency that will keep you in touch, warm and fed.

This list is not an official emergency checklist, although it was informed by Seamus's experience in the military and private security management, my training as an EMT and SF emergency response dork (NERT) and FEMA's prep kit list. We made sure we had most things on FEMA's general list, except for things you'd already have like canned food and plastic bags.
