What Is Most Important In A Survival Kit?

Food and water are the essentials you must be guaranteed to survive in an emergency. Make sure to pack enough for your expected trip length and know where you can source more if necessary.

Also, ensure that you have access to the right equipment, such as dehydrated food packs and water purifiers for when drinkable water and fresh food is scarce.
