We are often meet with such emergency situations which are beyond our control. While some of these are natural disasters others are man-inflicted. We can’t always control the occurrence of such disasters but can surely control the severity of the disaster. This obviously depends on how well prepared we are in handling a crisis situation. That is why it is always a wise to keep your emergency survival kit close. It depends on your unique needs to select the proper emergency kits and supplies. Once a disaster has already occurred you won’t have the time or the be calm to think out your plan and get emergency supplies. Hence being proactive and prepared is always the first step.

By being well prepared you can not only save your skin but also provide a helping hand to others when the help of local officials or rescue operators is yet to arrive. Most emergency survival kits are designed to contain the most vital of emergency supplies such as food, water, shelter, lighting, sanitation and other survival equipment. There are specialty emergency kits especially designed to meet disastrous situations like earthquakes, hurricane, and a pandemic or flu.

Some of the specialty emergency kits are listed below:
