Safety Kit Necessities: What You Need

First aid kit. Red suitcase isolated on white background. Safety emergency kits are meant to assist you during troublesome times in regards to an unplanned disaster. The problem here is that many don't have the slightest idea as to what to pack for an emergency safety kit. Thankfully, we're going to cover some of the necessary items needed for a safety emergency kit that can cover a wide range of disasters or disasters. With this being said, here's a look at the essential items needed for an emergency safety kit.  

A First Aid Kit

A first aid kit is one of the most important items needed for a safety emergency kit. Given the unforeseen danger (and the need for the kit), you'll never know if someone will need bandages or gauze to patch up an injury.  

A Hand-Crank (or Battery Operated) Radio

A radio is needed so that you can be aware of the events happening around you (which rings especially true for natural disasters). In addition to a regular radio, a NOAA Weather Radio (with extra batteries) is another great product to add to the list so you can know the status of the weather... and possibly remain out of mother nature's way.  

A Flashlight (w/ Extra Batteries)

Since a disaster usually enjoys leaving people in the dark, having a flashlight on hand is an excellent way to stay in control and escape the darkness. Keeping extra batteries isn't too bad of an idea either as many don't know if electrical power (or light) will be available for an emergency.  

A Whistle

A whistle is an excellent way to call for help in the event of an emergency. Being much more effective (and louder) than a call for help, a whistle is an excellent tool to add to your safety emergency kit.  

A Cellphone (w/ extra battery, chargers that are inverters or solar)

Since cellphones have become the main source of information and contact for people of all ages, it only makes sense to have additional batteries (or another phone) in case of an emergency. For example, having a prepaid phone ready to go in you emergency kit isn't a bad idea as some phones have internal batteries (that can't be replaced).  

A Can Opener

Since a can opener can serve many different purposes (aside from opening cans), it's a necessary item for an emergency safety kit. Considering the information above, compiling an emergency safety kit shouldn't be too much of a hassle. Since an emergency can strike at a moment's notice, now is the best time get your kit ready as it's better to be safe than sorry in the event of a natural disaster.
