A survival kit is a collection of items put in a container that will help you to take care of you until help arrives. Most survival kits that can be bought online contain items to help you be prepared for 72 hours. These kits contain water, food, shelter,first aid, communication, hygiene kits, and other supplies. These kits or collection of items can be saved in many type containers such as boxes, backpacks, fanny packs and suit case as well as other easy to carry or shelter in place locations. I always tell my clients two things are going to happen if they are faced with a emergency, they will either have to shelter in place or evacuate. In either case they need to have at least 3 days of supplies for each member of the family and any pets, which are sometimes forgotten about.

It is important to keep your kits in a location that everyone in your family knows about and can be easily accessed.Emergency Medical Treatment for Children
