Are you prepared for an emergency?
Do you have a kit put together that you can grab when an emergency strikes?
How about if you get stuck away from home. Is there a kit in your car you can grab?
The Mountain Meadows Charitable Trust under its Preparing for Adversity project has put together a modular survival kit that you can have at home or put in your car. You could also take modules tramping or take it with you when you go away.
This system is made up of 4 modules. Each module needs to be bought individually. Each module is a stand-alone unit in its own right and can be used by itself. When Attached together they form a complete unit that compliments each other. The kits come in green or black
Module 1 - First Aid/Survival kit
This module is stand-alone and can be carried with you when you go places, kept in your car, or attached to the other modules when needed.
It has a large velcro pad on its back that makes it quick to remove when attached to your pack or to another module.
The Module includes a basic first aid kit which is up to OSH standards and a survival kit. If you get caught out, there is enough to get you through.
Using this kit you could light a fire, cut firewood, put up a shelter with the emergency blanket and the paracord, keep yourself warm with the emergency sleeping bag and look after your first aid needs.
