For example, you may need a personal survival kit if you are embarking on a solo adventure, or if you live somewhere very remote. Depending on your budget you can go for the ordinary personal survival kit, or you go for the deluxe type. Although the deluxe personal survival kit may contain a little more, the ordinary type is far better than having none at all.

  1. Emergency food- This will help keep you strong enough to wait until help is reachable. You also need strength and energy to keep your body fueled.
  2. Emergency water- This is even more important that food as it is impossible to stay alive for a long period of time without it.
  3. Emergency lighting- In the event that the accident happened in the dark, or happen to trap you after the accident, you need a flashlight with charged batteries or a similar device to enable you get noticed easily by the rescue team on ground.
  4. Emergency First Aid- If you sustained an injury you need to tend it before it gets even more serious. Emergency survival kit ideas like having a first aid provided you gives you a head start before the medical team arrives. Ensure that all supplies are included.
  5. Emergency shelter and sanitation supplies- These are important as you need to stay protected if you happened to be in an emergency situation that is life threatening. There must be provision for items like sleeping bags, toilet paper and a poncho.
  6. Also make sure the survival kit comes with other handy yet life-saving things like a multi-purpose knife, a torch flare, a lighter and other vital items such dust masks.
