A Personal Survival Kit is a kit that has been customized to what your personal needs are. The kit can be customized for urban survival, hiking and camping, or included in your get home bag. For backpacking, these kits are great for organizing your smaller items- such as extra batteries, memory cards, tape, pencil or pen, and paper. For urban survival, you can keep most of the same examples as for backpacking, but include some street maps, phone numbers, USB jump drive,,, and whatever else you want.
For this example we have included:
- Empty plastic box that used to be a first aid
- 1 gallon plastic bag – that can double as a canteen
- Water Purification Tablets from ReadyPro.org
- Pencil or pen – carpenters pencil would be best, as you can shave off the wood to help build a fire.
- Tape – for closing a wound and for taping notes on doors
- Hank Crank Flashlight from EDC Depot – that way you do not have to worry about batteries
- Paper – for making notes, diary or leaving notes for other people
- MRE accessory pack – this contains toilet paper, chewing gum, moist towelette, salt, pepper – all in a convenient sealed pack.
- First aid kit from an Altoids tin – this contains pain killers, hand sanitizer, allergy tablets and super glue. The allergy tablets are important for people who are allergic to bee stings or other insect bites.
- USB drive – include digital maps, phone numbers, digital survival manuals, copies of important insurance papers, contact information,,,, anything else you can think of.
People that live in cold weather climates might want to include a space blanket. Maybe include some dryer lint and a flint steel for starting a fire.
