How to make a Survival Kit | with Combat and Survival magazine – In this video I take you through a 3 step process to make your own Survival Kit that could help keep you alive in the wilderness. Later in the video I take a look at Combat and Survival magazine that I purchased as a child, after seeing a great TV advertisement campaign that led me to believe if I got this magazine I’d know secret army skills and be able to defeat anyone.
► What is a Survival Kit?
A survival kit is a package of basic tools and supplies prepared in advance as an aid to survive in an emergency. Civil and military aircraft, lifeboats, and spacecraft are equipped with survival kits.
Survival kits, in a variety of sizes, contain supplies and tools to provide a survivor with basic shelter against the elements, help him or her to keep warm, meet basic health and first aid needs, provide food and water, signal to rescuers, and assist in finding the way back to help. Supplies in a survival kit normally contain a knife (often a Swiss army knife or a multi-tool), matches, tinder, first aid kit, bandana, fish hooks, sewing kit, and a flashlight.
Civilians such as forestry workers, surveyors, or bush pilots, who work in remote locations or in regions with extreme climate conditions may also be equipped with survival kits. Disaster supplies are also kept on hand by those who live in areas prone to earthquakes or other natural disasters. For the average citizen to practice disaster preparedness, some towns will have survival stores to keep survival supplies in stock.
The American Red Cross recommends an emergency preparedness kit that is easy to carry and use in the event of an emergency or disaster.[
