There are many different situations that can be serious and any of them could happen to you. It’s not always the solo rock climber that is in danger of dying out in the country. Your weekend hiking group loses you. Or maybe your car has simply broken down or run out of gas on a wintery road. The question is that you need some equipment to give you some more hours until the rescue arrives!If you’re camping or hiking, you’ll want some survival supplies in your backpack. The old saying is “It’s better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it.” in this post, we’ll take you the 10 items that should go in every survival kit.
10. Compass and Map
When you are lost in the country and if you have some water, a map and the compass you are lucky!! Your best friends! These things and some simple orienteering skills can certainly show you the way back to the nearest safe place!If you’re without a map, but you still have your compass, you can at least get going in the right direction. Yes, GPS seems to be much better for finding your exact location from any place on Earth, but it needs something you won’t have in many bad situations: a charged battery. So, the compass is a better choice.
9. Fire Starter
In bad situations a fire gives many things — warmth in cold weather, heat to cook food and cleaning dirty water and a rescue signal. It also gives you security and light at night.So any hiker or camper should have small fire starting kit. After you get a waterproof box, put at least two lighters, some weatherproof matches, a flint and a small magnifying glass lens. You can also buy a package of sparklers. They make excellent emergency fire starters for almost wet leaves and kindling. Use the magnifying glass lens to focus the sun’s light for making fire. Sometimes it is good to practice starting fires by your kit in different situations. It’s fun and could even help save your life.
8. First Aid Kit
You were careless and injured yourself!. The cut on your arm is pretty deep and you know your ankle is sprained and you are happy that you have a first aid kit. Hikers, bikers, cross country skiers, hunters, climbers and campers should all keep a first aid kit. It’s also a good idea to keep one in your car for emergencies.It’s very important to know what to have. Begin with a medications and wound-cleaning solution — anti-bacterial ointments, alcohol, peroxide, pain reliever, antacid, aspirin and anti-histamine. You should also have some tweezers, gauze, bandages and eyewash ready. If you’re diabetic or know you have allergy to something, do not forget to keep emergency supplies of them in your kit. Pack some hydrocortisone cream for rashes and burn ointment in case there’s burn yourself. It’s also a good idea to pack a small first-aid book to give instruction for any accidents that may happen.
A mirror!! yess! it can help you survive a worst situation. It is a signal in the sun for the rescue team to find you!Any old small mirror will be good for signaling. Size isn’t important here: even a small 2 by 3 inch (5 by 7.6 centimeter) mirror flash can be seen from 100 miles (160 kilometers) away. Signal mirrors work best on clear days with direct sunlight, but you can also use them on cloudy days. Not only that, but you can reflect headlights, flashlight beams and even bright moonlight for rescue.
If you are in the worst situation you need to do two things — stay alive and find rescue. Yes, a signal with a mirror is good, but if you want an unmistakable signal that no plane, helicopter will miss, you need to buy a flare There are many different types of flares. Some require a gun and shoot into the sky. Others are handheld and emit a red flame that you hold in your hand and wave over your head. Many car emergency kits come with flares.. If you really want to go high-end, you can spring for a laser flare. It casts a beam that can be seen day or night up to 30 miles (48 kilometers) away. They are expensive but not more than your life.
5. Survival Knife
Most survival knives are the same. They have long blades with serrated edges on one side and a hollow handle. Inside the handle is a small survival kit with matches, fishhooks and line, a compass.
There are many kinds. A standard they typically weigh between 5 and 10 ounces (141 to 283 grams). Most will come with flat and Phillips head screwdrivers, pokers, saw blades, and bottle and can openers. Some models come with scissors, serrated knives, metal files and Allen wrenches.
3. Snakebite Kit
The great nature is all fun and games until you have a poisonous snake kissing your leg. Yes, snakes are afraid of humans and try to avoid you, but anything can happen out in the country! Snakebites are no fun and can cause anything from sickness to death. Because of this danger, you should have a snakebite kit on hand.
Unfortunately, many ready-to-buy kits are filled with items that aren’t good enough for snakebite. Look for kits that have suction extractors. You should add some over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pills, pain killers and an emergency whistle. If you get bitten, you may become weak and immobilized, so the whistle may be your only call for help.
2. Water Treatment
If you get lost the wilderness, the one thing you need to live, is drinkable water of course. Humans just can’t live without it. You can live a few weeks without food, but without water you will only last a few days.Water filters are the best option and they come in all shapes, sizes and prices. Some are no bigger than a large drinking straw. To be sure about everything, you should also put some water filter tablets in your backpack. They’re typically iodine or chlorine pills that dissolve in water to make it OK to drink. The water may not taste good, but it’ll keep you alive. Keep the filter in your backpack and your tablets and emergency filter in a waist pack or even carry them on your person.
