Survival supplies are very much abundant in military operations especially during overseas operations. Survival supplies are also available in coastal rescue agencies and in ocean vessels and commercial air planes. Survival supplies are typically classified into these categories:
- shelter supplies,
- first aid or medical supplies,
- water and food supplies,
- navigation and signaling and
- utility tools.
Example of survival supplies for warmth and shelter are blankets, lighter or matches, mosquito repellents, aluminum reflective covering materials and rain coats or ponchos in case of being lost in extremely precipitated region.
First aid, health and medical supplies are bandages, aspirin, tablets for infection or diarrhea, razor, tweezers, first aid tape, gauze, sterile pads, toilet paper and soap. Of course survival is not just all about finding good shelter, you must also keep your self away from injuries and accidents. And in the event, make sure you have the supplies to help heal the wounds or reduce pain while still waiting for rescuers.
Water is singularly the most essential part of survival. Sadly, bringing clean bottled water with you is not sufficient although it could help. You may bring survival supplies like edible salt used for cleaning teeth and iodine tablets used for purifying water. Canned are goods are also good.
Money may be useful in case you need to buy something you’re missing. In some cases the ATM may not be working so a few dollars (or silver coins) might come in handy.
In a situation where there is a power failure or no communication lines, signaling supplies like a torch and candles can help.
Remember, that humans have instincts to survive. With the aid of survival supplies, it will not just help you stay alive, it will also help you get to safety quicker.
