Emergency Must-Haves

Think like a boy scout and be prepared

It's impossible to foresee every emergency, but it doesn't take a psychic to predict a few cuts, blisters or scrapes when you're on an outdoor adventure. Whether you're driving desert highways, sailing the open seas or rappelling down the side of a mountain, some safety items are simply must-haves.

First Aid Kits

To ensure you purchase a first aid kit with the right contents, go to a store that specializes in your chosen outdoor adventure . Not only can you ask questions and get expert advice from individuals who've been there and done that, but they'll make sure your kit contains the items you need.

If you'd prefer to assemble your own, be sure to include compression bandages, adhesive bandages of varying sizes, scissors, gauze, “moleskin” for blisters, disinfectant spray or ointment, tape, pain medication and a tensor bandage.

Swiss Army Knife / Multi-Purpose Tool

Even if you only plan to open canned beans, you'll likely find yourself using your Swiss Army Knife in dozens of creative ways. Depending on the model you purchase, they can slice, dice and julienne fry. But more importantly, they can shave kindling, repair damaged equipment, tighten screws, cut rope and remove splinters.

The model you buy will depend on the outdoor activity you choose, but at the very least, get one that includes a screwdriver, can opener, scissors, saw (serrated edge), tweezers, and pliers. Even if you trek only once a year, you'll find this handy item earns its keep year-round.

Whistle

If you're lost in the wilderness , adrift at sea or if you sprain an ankle on the trail, an inexpensive whistle can be worth its weight in gold. Louder than the average human shout, it will scare off aggressive animals and can be heard from greater distances. Lightweight, easy-to-pack and affordable, this piece of emergency equipment should go everywhere you do on your outdoor adventure.

Light or Lamp

While campers tend to pack a variety of flashlights and lanterns, many day-trippers don't think to slip one in their backpack. But if a daylight trek inadvertently extends into the night, even a small flashlight can be invaluable. If you don't like to use energy-hungry light sources, then pack a flashlight that operates by a crank, or try a shakable model. When purchased from reliable manufacturers, they eliminate the need for environmentally hostile disposable batteries.
