For just a few money and effort, you can build a “Diy survival kit ” that’ll get you out of all kinds of disaster. The survival kit is intended to supplement the regular contents of a Go Bag. It should be worn at all times and separate from the backpack. Don’t leave house without it during any kind of disaster.
Building your survival kit from scratch is one most satisfying, yet intimidating projects you’ll ever attempt. Although, you’re putting together a kit that could save your life, and the lives of those with you.But build your kit wrong and you could be in an awful mess.
Here is a examples of the stuff we packed into your kits.
Emergency Whistle – Signaling for help. Much louder than your voice and uses very little energy to produce a sound that travels far.
FIRST AID – This kit has about everything you need. Buying individual items is TOO expensive
+Alcohol Prep Pads
+Medical Tape – Small Roll
+Tweezers – Scavenge from Home
+Safety Pins – Scavenge from Home
Water Purification Straw – Filters nasty stuff from water without boiling or tablets. Long life span.
One each of gallon- and quart-size zipper-lock bags for holding water and building stills; the bags should have wide mouths so you can skim for water and reach into crevices.
Heavy-duty space blanket with grommets and reflective side for shelter and signaling.
Extra knife- should be all-purpose with a fixed, double-edged, carbon-steel blade that can throw a spark.
Firestarters- cotton balls saturated with petroleum jelly and stuffed in a film container pack the smallest, but you can also use chips or other dry, fatty foods or even dryer lint coated with paraffin.
Mini flashlight with spare bulb.
Dental floss -a tough string for many uses.
Cigarette lighter- get a bright color so you won’t lose it.
Brightly colored bandanna- doubles as a pot holder, hat, and water filter.
