OVERNIGHT SURVIVAL KIT


With all of the outdoor summer trips coming up, it might be a good idea to create a small overnight survival kit to carry with you, to help keep you safe in a worse-case scenario. Here are a few ideas of items to include:
  • Multiple fire starters: box matches, lighter, flint & steel, strike-anywhere matches in a prescription bottle
  • Multiple fire tinder sources: cotton balls swabbed with Vaseline, WetFire tablets
  • Alcohol hand cleaner (can also serve as fire starter)
  • Water treatment tablets
  • Micro cordage (rope)
  • Multi-tool (pocket knife)
  • High-calorie survival food bar
  • Water
  • Whistle
  • Compass
  • Toilet Paper
  • Bandage
  • Aluminum foil
  • Emergency poncho
  • Emergency space blanket
  • Small plastic container to store everything
