All items are packed in our Drawstring Bag/Backpack with two string shoulder straps for easy carry. This kit is designed to meet the demands for all-purpose survival practices. The Survival Kit for Children follows the guidelines of governmental agencies, including the FEMA and Red Cross requirements for one person/four days.
This kit includes the following items:
Food and Water: The food and water in this kit will provide the nutrition necessary to survive for up to three days. The food in this kit has a shelf life of 5 years. To add additional survival days to the kit, refer to the Food and Water Section of this website to purchase supplementary food and drinking water. The essential nutritional intake of 1,200 calories and one gallon of drinking water per day/per person is recommended.
12 – 400 Calorie Food Bars (a great shortbread cookie flavor, a 5-year shelf life and approved by U.S. Coast Guard)
6 – 4 Ounce Water Pouches (4.25 fluid oz. of filtered water, 5-year shelf life and approved by U.S. Coast Guard)
20 – EPA Registered Water Purification Tablets (each tablet purifies 1 liter of water)
Shelter and Warmth: The extreme conditions of winter and summer can produce inhospitable and unforgiving environments. These items will help provide protection against harsh temperatures, rain and snow.

Light and Communication: If stranded away from home or caught in a situation without power, these items will prove extremely useful. The ability to see and communicate are two of the most basic factors needed in an emergency or disaster.
1 – LED Rechargeable Flashlight (never needs batteries, just squeezing the handle generates power)
1 – 5-in-1 Survival Whistle (the whistle has a compass, signal mirror, flint starter and a waterproof container with a lanyard. The whistle sound travels over a mile)

Medical and First Aid: A good first aid kit is one of the most critical components of any survival kit. Unfortunately, most survival kit suppliers overlook this and provide little more than gauze and a few band aids. Please pay close attention to the first aid contents of any survival kit and compare them to our kits; you’ll be surprised at the difference.
