Survival Gear

Have you considered what you must have in your survival kit? Here well review what you need to have in your survival kit. The primary purpose of a survival kit is to have already available things needed in a survival situation. These items should be at the ready, easy to grab and there should be enough for everyone without having to stop and pack. Supplies should be enough to last at least 72 hours.

Typically, each family member will have his or her own survival kit. Everyone having their own will help to evenly distribute what is needed for each family member. Every bag should have the basics from fire starting material to food, some sort of shelter and warm clothing. That way, if a bag is lost or stolen in the process, there will still be enough for everyone.

Many are hopeful and believe that FEMA or the Red Cross will be there within three days. This may or may not happen depending on the situation. Areas that are hardest hit are where FEMA and Red Cross are going to concentrate first so it may be weeks, if ever before some areas see help. In this time, food supplies may be exhausted and water sources may become contaminated. Where will you be then?

In order to endure such a disaster, you'll need to be prepared with products that can clean your water, feed yourself and others, and a way to gather food such as traps, fishing lines, and know how to forage. You can construct shelter from tools that you bring and tarps and your environment. Always be prepared.

Before you ever pack your bag, lay everything out and ensure that you have a shelter or a way to make a shelter, blankets, lightweight nylon tarps, thermal blankets, rain ponchos, and extra socks as well as plastic bags (these work well in leaking shoes). A camp ax and a small wood saw as well as some paracord is a must have in each pack as well. Roll everything up securely in a tarp or poncho and strap this on the outside of the each pack.

It's not wise to set the tents up ahead of time, someone else may come along and take them or take over them. If your in the path of escape, you may wind up a victim. Save tents and sleeping bags for a secure, out of the way location where you won't have to worry about such situations.

Survival kit ideas can all be tailored to fit your family's needs. Adjust them to your personal choices and needs. Plan for the weather accordingly. Remember, food, shelter, water, and fire as well as personal protection.
