How Stuff Works: Survival edition
I'm guessing that gadget and kit lovers will love this one. How Stuff Works has published a list of the top 10 survival items to stuff in your backpack or the trunk of your car.
The writer has also included short but informative summaries of how each item can be used during an emergency situation.
Since January, I have been building my own emergency pack and already have items like a first aid kit, water purification tablets, and water- and wind-proof matches. The Government of Canada recommends you have enough supplies to last 72 hours in case of an emergency.
As I type this, I am realizing my food supply has dwindled to a few Snickers bars and elk pepperettes and I should do some shopping on the weekend.
How Stuff Works is recommending a complete safety kit include flares and a snakebite kit. Canadian Tire sells the flares. Not sure I need a snakebite kit in the city but might order one just to take it apart and read the instructions.
