Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) September 11, 2006 -
According to SafetyKitsPlus.com many people already recognize the necessity and benefits of carrying personal survival kits and gear. Backpackers, hikers, campers, boaters, bicyclists and outdoor enthusiasts across the board pack survival gear. For them it’s safety awareness. By definition, the nature of what they do involves risk and adventure and personal survival gear is required equipment. They understand well that it may save their lives when an unexpected crisis strikes. Many others often neglect to face the harsh reality that someday they may find themselves needing to survive.
This isn’t surprising though. How many of us don’t wear our seat belts in our cars, bike helmets or go hiking without a buddy, all the time thinking “it won’t happen to me”? It’s a national attitude of taking survival for granted. Everyone thinks crisis will never strike them and they avoid thinking about it at all costs.
According to the head of Product Development for SafetyKitsPlus.com people rely heavily on their cell phones when they need help. “Don’t be fooled into thinking your cell phone will save your life”, he says. If its practical and you can afford it, a PLB (personal locator beacon) is a good way to ensure survival, short of that he suggests carrying a personal survival kit.
