Respirator (gas mask) and replacement filters - personally I think you should get a full face gas mask. - Advantage 420 Half Mask designed to filter out ammonia, chlorine, and toxic dust. Cost is about $40.

Water Filters - buy a UV (ultra violetlight) Water Purification System and also buy the tablets as a backup. - CamelBak All Clear UV Water Purification System UV lightbulb zaps waterborne bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. Cost is about $130
