Reference this list and make sure you have all of these at the ready.

That covers the bulk of what you need to prepare for emergency situations – but it is not comprehensive as the details in each category are not broken down.
When in doubt, more is better. If you think you could have a use for it in a dire situation, add it to your bug-out bag or survival pack.
