With the holiday season approaching, CampingSurvival.com recommends giving survival kits as holiday gifts that are both unique and functional. Survival kits can bring peace of mind to the gift-giver by providing the assurance that their loved ones have everything they need in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.
“People might not think of preparing for disasters during the holiday season, but we believe a great holiday gift should be interesting and functional, as well as something the recipient might not buy for themselves,” said Tom Sciacca, President of CampingSurvival.com. “Survival kits and other emergency gear such as meals-ready-to-eat (MREs) perfectly fit this description.”
One holiday gift idea CampingSurvival.com recommends in particular is its “Urban Survival Kit,” a starter kit of items needed to survive an emergency or disaster.
The Urban Survival Kit contains 26 items, including several that cannot be found in other emergency kits, including the Dynamo Flashlight, a multi-functional, hand-cranked device that includes a flashlight, multi-band FM radio receiver and a high-intensity siren.
The survival kit also includes several other unique items, such as a four-in-one emergency tool, a chow set and “Survival-kit-in-a-can,” a 38-piece emergency kit that is compact, lightweight and water-tight.
The entire “Urban Survival Kit” fits into a waterproof black nylon backpack selected for its quality and ability to stand up to the rigors of an emergency situation. The kit is also expandable, and users may add items such as additional water-purification tablets or MREs.
“When a disaster strikes an unprepared person, they might have to pay a fortune to receive supplies via next-day air shipping or, worse yet, not have access to needed equipment at all,” Sciacca said. “Giving a survival kit or other emergency gear as a holiday gift is the perfect way to know that your loved ones are safe.”
