When you're out boating, biking, hiking, or camping, the focus is on enjoyment and having fun. When something happens, you want to be able to take care of it quickly. Having a well-stocked emergency kit in your backpack or bike bag, on your boat or in your RV, and with your camping supplies can make the difference between continued fun and the end of a day on the water, at the beach, or in the woods.
A good emergency kit for recreation contains basics such as first-aid supplies, as well as survival tools in case you get stranded or need to leave someone to go for help. Recreation can take you farther away from emergency assistance and medical care, so it's important to have emergency first-aid supplies. If you get caught in the rain, you'll appreciate a rain poncho and emergency blanket. And though you hope you'll never need it, a whistle and signaling mirror can help you get emergency assistance. Your emergency kit can help you Live Ready for whatever your favorite recreation activity brings.
Live Ready Tip: Stash some extra cash, extra car and house keys, and a map of the area in your emergency kit.
Live Ready Tip: Keep emergency contact information in your emergency kit so you can easily find key numbers should you need them.
