Buy an air tight container, you can get nice ones at PetSmart. Fill it with enough food to last you 7 days per dog. Put the date you filled it on the top. Every 3-4 months, rotate with new food. I would also make sure that you have enough water for the dogs and family for at least 5 days. You can use old 2 liter bottles of soda and fill with tap water. Date those as well. Water should be emptied and refilled every 3-4 months.

Keep a copy of all the dogs records, including photos, in a separate place, a fire safe is good, so that if you need to skedaddle, you can grab that and have all rabies vac info and identification. Make sure all your animals are Microchipped and the chip registered. One of the contacts should be a phone number that is not likely to change, a cell phone you have had for years, your vet clinic, your mom in Topeka.

Sorry. I think about this a lot. Not that Maryland(where I live) is prone to natural disasters. LOL.
