A Survival Kit -- Knowing What to Include in It

These first aid kits are handy and very inexpensive. A good one is made by Johnson & Johnsonbar code: 8137-008123.

When something is used from the kit, make a note of it and replace that item as soon as possible.

5 Items to Leave Out of Your Emergency Survival Kit

However, that doesn’t mean you should pack the kitchen sink. Having too much in the survival kit can prove almost as problematic as not having the right items in the kit to begin with. Leave the following out of your survival kit: 1 – Irreplaceable Documents and Valuables Saving your irreplaceable documents and valuables from a fire, earthquake, tornado, or anything that can destroy your home probably sounds like a good idea. However, your emergency survival kit is not the way to do it. You should store valuables and copies of your important documents in a fireproof safe or a bank vault. Put a flash drive with digital backups of your photos in this safe location as well. During a disaster, you don’t want your kit clogged up with these items that you won’t need for the next few days. 2 – Matches You might think you’ll have to light candles for light during an emergency, but storing matches in your emergency survival kit is potentially dangerous. They could spark a fire and light up everything else in your kit. It’s also possible that, during a disaster, they’ll get wet and won’t work anyway. You should instead rely on flashlights, lanterns and batteries.
