Being prepared for a disaster or an emergency when you are far from civilization while traveling or hiking, is very important. Besides having a good supply of water, you need to be prepared with emergency food rations to help keep up your energy while being stuck out in the middle of nowhere or there is not any food, and will not be, for quite a while like you might experience after an earthquake, hurricane or other natural disaster.

The USCG recommends a minimum of 800 calories per day for survival. This is a base number and can be effected by the size, age and weight of an individual. However these numbers are based on pure survival. Their tests were conducted on life rafts where there was no physical activity, just pure survival. In emergency disaster conditions, where you are expending energy and moving around, the Coast Guard recommends having at least one 2,400 calorie food ration bar per person per day
