Survival Kit Basics
Besides preparing for the worst in everyday life, you may need a survival kit if you have a risk-prone job. Foresters, bush pilots and other workers in extremely remote locations or in harsh environments may need to keep a survival kit handy if they are stranded somewhere uninviting. Although kits can be tailored to certain situations and environments they are usually crafted with some of the following principles in mind:
- Shelter or protection from the elements, especially cold
- First Aid supplies and other medical necessities
- Emergency food & water, supplies to purify water, or fishing/hunting gear
- A method of navigating the area and/or signaling to rescuers
- Useful tools like a pocket knife, hatchet, needle and thread, solar charger, etc.
A kit could be big or small but the more comprehensive it is the better equipped you’ll be in an emergency. If you’re preparing for big disasters make sure that you include up-to-date prescriptions, including glasses or contacts and medications, for the whole family. Make sure that the whole family knows where to grab the survival kit, how to evacuate the house or area safely and the location of designated rendezvous points. Periodically check your survival kit, or kits, to ensure that everything in them is within its expiration date and will operate effectively in an emergency. Check batteries, flares and food supplies and consider keeping your survival kit in a waterproof container.
