Herb Ziter, a passionate outdoorsman and hunter, has invented the ÂUltimate Safety PakÂÂan emergency kit to aid hunters and others against careless accidents when far from medical facilities.
ÂI have seen too many calamities out in the woods that never would have happened if people would just take a few minutes to go into the hunt properly prepared,Â said Ziter. ÂSome of the mistakes people make can lead to serious injury or death.Â
Ziter tells of an incident that inspired the creation of the Ultimate Safety Pak emergency kit. ÂA friend of mine went hunting with a group of family and friends on private property. One of the members of the group had a Âcall to nature.Â After he was nearly done with Âhis businessÂ he was wiping himself clean with a white Kleenex napkin. Suddenly another member of his hunting party shot him in the rump! You see, white Kleenex looks exactly like a white tail deerÂs tail when it is running!Â
The man was seriously injured and neither he nor anyone else in the hunting party had any safety paraphernalia to treat the injury. It took 30 minutes from the time he was taken from the woods to get him to a nearby hospital.
ÂI created the Safety Pak just for that reason,Â explained Ziter. ÂAs an experienced hunter I know that a pink Kleenex tissue would not have gotten the same result as the white KleenexÂand that was the catalyst for this accident. Hunters need to know what to have in the woods and I believe that my... emergency kit is the answer.Â
The Ultimate Safety Pak is not just for hunters. The fully-stocked emergency kit, containing over 25 essential items, is suitable to keep in cars, in the home, and in emergency or disaster shelters.
The Ultimate Safety Pak contains:
Â Moist Towelettes, for cuts and cleaning hands
Â Tissues, used for hygiene and colored pink for safety
Â Rain Poncho, for protection from the elements or can be used as a ground cloth
Â Whistle/Compass Combination, to attract attention if hurt and needing help, or in case the owner gets lost
Â 12 in. Nylon Cord, for use as a makeshift shelter with the included Space Blanket
Â First Aid Kit, containing adhesive bandages, adhesive tape, antiseptic wipes, gauze wrapping for bandages, plastic tweezers, and a safety pin
Â Waterproof matches and Firestarting Cones, two of the most useful implements when caught out in the elements
Â Mirror, to signal for help during daylight hours
Â Flashlight and Batteries
Â 13-in-One Tool Â a four-inch long tool containing pliers, a wire cutter, a ruler, a 3Â long knife, a smaller knife, a large and a small flathead screwdriver, a Phillips-head screwdriver, an awl, a fish scaler, a fishhook remover, a saw, and a bottle opener
About The Ultimate Safety Pak:
The Ultimate Safety Pak was created by Herb Ziter in 1999 after a friend was seriously injured in a hunting accident. Since then, the versatile ÂUltimate Safety PakÂ emergency kit has found its way into hundreds of homes, cars, and hunting packs, helping secure peace of mind when an emergency arises.
