Survival Gear

What is Survival gear?

Survival gear can be many things, products to simply survive at home without electricity and water or major supplies in case you lose your home. You would need something to provide shelter, devices that assist with making fires for warmth or cooking, water purification devices or self defense products. Think about what you would need if you had to leave your house and not have access to any usual services, such as grocery stores, water treatment, and shelter. The gear you want is what you need to stay alive and well.

Why do I need survival gear?

Many people have started to buy survival gear online to be prepared for an emergent situation or catastrophe. At any time, a disaster could occur due to destructive weather, fire, power failure, economic collapse, political unrest, or war.

The point of having survival gear is to give yourself and your family the ability to survive when civilization, order, or life as you know it changes drastically and you are forced to fend for yourself. One aspect of preparation is to build a survival kit with survival supplies and gear. Many people choose to keep a home emergency kit in case of lack of services at home due to a natural disaster and a "bug out" bag in case you need to leave quickly. You may additionally want to have an emergency kit in your car. Whatever the case, the supplies you need may be different for each scenario.

Keep your kit stored in a safe place, making it accessible if it is needed during a disaster or emergent situation. Don’t wait until a disaster happens, then it’s too late. Always be prepared!

What survival gear do I need?

You will need products to make fire for warmth and cooking, clean water, provide first aid, light, shelter and self defense.

Here is a list of possible needs: non-perishable food, flashlight, batteries, candles, knife, knife sharpener, axe, water filter, portable water pouch, wire saw, compass, lighter, flint and steel, flares, whistle, solar oven bag for cooking, battery power pack, duct tape, bear spray, pepper spray, gun, ammo, and paracord which can be used for a number of things.

Can I use my survival gear for camping or hiking?

It is best to keep your kit separate, even though many of these products will assist you with both camping and hiking. If you do decide to use it, just remember to replace anything you use up or that breaks, so that when an emergency arises you have what you need.

Where can I buy emergency gear?

Of course, you can buy survival gear online right here at Firehouse Personal Safety Products.

Physical stores that have large selections and provide the bigger products such as tents, tarps, cast iron pots, fishing gear, guns and ammo, etc. are Cabella's, REI, and Bass Pro Shop.

What do I need in an urban area survival kit?

The first thing you want to do is buy an inconspicuous suitcase or backpack to pack your supplies. In emergency situations, you don't want everyone to know you have what you need to survive. Secondly, you need a tent for shelter, a firestarter like a lighter and cotton balls, or flint and steel, a water purification system, knife, can opener, cans of food, duct tape, poncho, paracord, whistle, toilet paper, wash cloth, first aid kit, candles, or flashlight/batteries, wire saw, and a mess kit. You can really put whatever you feel you may absolutely need. It just depends on how big and heavy you want your kit to be.

Are paracord bracelets useful?

Paracord is an extremely useful tool. It is also known as parachute cord and 550 cord. It contains seven strands intertwined nylon cord, which makes it really strong. It has a minimum breaking strenth of 550 pounds, therefore, it is strong enough to support a person's weight. For this reason it can be used as a rappelling cord in an emergency. Wear it as a bracelet to ensure that you always have it on hand while in the wilderness.

You can drape the line between two trees to use it as a clothesline to dry wet clothing or hang a sheet over it to make a shelter.

You can split the strands and use it to sew a hole in your backpack or clothing, provided you have a needle.

Add a hook to separated strands for fishing line. What other ways can you think of to use paracord?
