Essential survival kits for all occasions : Natural Disasters, Outdoor, Roadside and More!

A survival kit is a package of basic tools and supplies prepared as an aid to survival in an emergency. Civil and military aircraft, lifeboats, and spacecraft are equipped with survival kits.
Survival kits, in a variety of sizes, contain supplies and tools to provide a survivor with basic shelter against the elements, help them to keep warm, meet basic health and first aid needs, provide food and water, signal to rescuers, and assist in finding the way back to help.

1- Natural Disasters (Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Wildfires, Floods):
A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the Earth; examples include firestorms, dust storms, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, and other geologic processes. A natural disaster can cause loss of life or damage property, and typically leaves some economic damage in its wake, the severity of which depends on the affected population’s resilience and on the infrastructure available.

2- Roadside Emergency Assistance Kit:
A basic roadside emergency kit should include some of the following items:
  • Jumper cables. Or you can carry a small, portable, lithium-ion battery with jumper cables. Usually, these batteries will also recharge computers and cell phones.
  • Flares or triangle reflectors. LED flares are also an option worth considering.
  • A quart or more of motor oil
  • A gallon of coolant
  • First-aid kit
  • Blanket or space blanket
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Tool kit with screwdrivers, pliers, adjustable wrench, pocket knife
  • A can of tire inflator and sealant such as Fix-a-Flat
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Paper towels
  • Spray bottle with washer fluid
  • Ice scraper (if you live in an area with snow)
  • Pen and paper
  • Granola or energy bars
  • Bottled water

Once you have assembled your roadside emergency kit, find a good way to keep these items together in your trunk so they don’t roll around. Even a simple cardboard box works well. A backpack is another option. But make sure the kit is quickly accessible because you might need it in a hurry.

You also can buy pre-assembled emergency roadside kits that come in handy storage bags to keep the items organized. A quick Internet or Amazon search will locate dozens of such kits ranging in price and size.

3- Wilderness Survival Kit Essentials ( Camping, Hiking, Fishing and More):
First of all, some sort of first aid items. Since we’re talking survival, I mean real first aid items, not just Band-Aids and first aid ointment. Get a triangle bandage and some large gauze pads to use for compresses. If you need a first aid kit in a survival situation, you don’t need a Band-Aid, you need serious help. A triangle bandage can be used for a pressure dressing or to attach a splint. This is useful.
Your basic wilderness survival kit should include:
First aid items
Water purification system
Fire starting equipment
Signaling items
Food procurement items
Shelter items
