No matter where you are going or what you are doing, there is always a possibility of facing dangers no matter how much experience you have. Which is why you should always have an emergency survival kit ready. Including the basic emergency essentials can be the difference between life and death. These items include:
Flint or magnesium Firestarter
Non-Perishable Food Rations
Basic First Aid / Medical Kit
The list of items is limitless depending on your general needs, especially if you have a medical condition. However having the basic items ready to hand can dramatically improve your chances of survival in an emergency situation or just help out in everyday situations. Most campers, hikers, medics, climbers and outdoorsmen have a pack wherever they go.
