If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that we should all be better equipped for emergencies, regardless of who we are.
Things may swiftly develop, from airborne illness to political upheaval and natural disasters. So having an emergency survival pack on hand may save your life.
You might think building a survival kit is simple. Just throw in some knives, first aid, and you’re good. While a survival kit with such basic things can help you for a short period, it won’t help you in the long run.
So, we’re going to cover all the essential survival gear you’ll need to construct a survival kit for your rescue.
You get many survival packs in the market now. The choice is yours if you want to buy it off the racks or build it from scratch. You can create a customized one according to your needs. You may crosscheck the things you already have in your bag and note down the missing stuff. The items in the checklist include:
Food And Water
When you hear doctors emphasize drinking more water- take it seriously.
Without the graciousness of h20, your body can shut down in two or three days!
Even a single day of dehydration may impair your judgment, make you sluggish. Iodine pills are quite important and take up practically a little room in your pack. Get a pair of portable survival water filters since these work much faster than iodine.
We eat to survive. Fancy burgers and pizzas are there to add a taste to your tongue, but we eat not just for flavour. We eat to survive. Without proper food, you will starve, shrivel up, and may have major health problems.
Calories are energy regardless of how they are stored; therefore, having some food storage in your emergency kit is vital!
It takes only a while for things to go wrong; grocery store stocks get depleted, causing anxiety.
Here you can choose dehydrated food or energy bars. Peanut packs or mix nuts and trail are some options. The underlying thing is you need food and water in your kit.
Tools And Gear
Keep survival knives or camping knives if you know how to use one. They can help you accomplish a lot.
Knives have been powerful survival tools for humankind from the beginning of time. And it is still true today – don’t be caught off guard without one.
Fire is one of man’s dearest survival tools; you’re badly underprepared if you don’t know how to make one. If you can start a fire without a matchstick, kudos to you! But why go through the trouble?
Instead, bring a set of waterproof, stormproof matches with you. Because surviving an emergency should never be made any more difficult than it needs to be!
- A compact first aid kit
- A small compass
- A blanket
- Fish hooks and lines
- Some ducts and tapes
- Emergency lights
You can equip yourself for any difficult scenario with just one bag. When the situation is chaotic, this early preparedness will maintain your cool and keep you safe.
