Preparation Team
The list author says: "Hope for the best, prepare for the most likely."
Spyderco Police 3 G-10 Plain Edge Knife, Black
Spyderco Police 3 G-10 Plain Edge Knife, Black
"Lots of people get into the big tactical knives (SOG, GERBER,KABAR, etc.) They're fine, but most people are not going to haul a big, fixed blade around on their hip all the time. This knife is a great all-around blade: big enough for self-protection, yet small enough when folded fit in pocket. Circle cut-out makes one-handed opening easier. Discreet, useful, built to last a lifetime."
Coghlans Waterproof Matches 10 Pack
Coghlans Waterproof Matches 10 Pack
"Great deal on matches."
Paisley Black Bandana
Paisley Black Bandana
"Many uses: neck gaiter, dust mask, hot pad, sling, bandage, cut up for gun cleaning patches, sunblock for head or neck, dish rag, trail marker, wave for signal, etc. We've used them for a belt a times. One of our team members loves them to dry off flies when fly-fishing. Get a bunch. Use your imagination."
Smith's PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener
Smith's PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener
"Use a wet-stone for larger blades. This is great for scissors, knives, loppers, tin snips, etc."
Light My Fire Original Swedish FireSteel Army 12,000 Strike Fire Starter
Light My Fire Original Swedish FireSteel Army 12,000 Strike Fire Starter
"Yeah, matches are easier, but this will last you a lifetime and works in wind and rain. If you have dry tinder or a fire-starter, you're in business with this guy."
Rothco Type III Commercial Paracord
Rothco Type III Commercial Paracord
"Another "use your imagination" item. Lashing, belt, shoelaces, gun sling, dog collar or leash, use with cloth for makeshift sun hat, tie down a load in the back of the pick-up. Inner threads can be separated and used for fishing line, sewing, or even dental floss! Sweet."
Adventure Medical Kits UltraLight & Watertight .7 Kit
Adventure Medical Kits UltraLight & Watertight .7 Kit
"Also has all the essentials in a easy to pack bag."
ER Emergency Ready Thermal Mylar Blankets, Pack of 4
ER Emergency Ready Thermal Mylar Blankets, Pack of 4
"These are inexpensive and hold in the body heat. Very light and compact. Yes, you'd prefer a wool blanket to stay warm, but they're heavy, bulky, and expensive. These you can easily throw in a back-pack, bug-out-bag, the trunk or your car, etc."
3M Dust Respirators 8210, N95, 20-Pack
3M Dust Respirators 8210, N95, 20-Pack
"When our team was in Haiti after the earthquake, these were a very popular item. They were great for wearing on the dusty roads and in medical situations.. Helps with smoke, dust, and bad odors."
Petzl E97 PM Tikka Plus 2 Headlamp, Mystic Gray
Petzl E97 PM Tikka Plus 2 Headlamp, Mystic Gray
"A flash light is great, but that takes up a hand. Try washing dishes with one. A headlamp is great for power outages, night time hiking or reading. The Tikka is small and powerful."

Eton NFR160WXB Microlink Self-Powered AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger (Black)

Husqvarna 445 2-Stroke Gas PoweRed Chain Saw, 18-Inch (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"You may wonder why we include a chainsaw on our list. Just ask anyone who's lived through a hurricane or tornado. Heck, by a second one and be the neighborhood hero one day."
Warp Brothers 6CH20-C 6 Mil Clear Plastic Sheeting, 20-Foot by 25-Foot
Warp Brothers 6CH20-C 6 Mil Clear Plastic Sheeting, 20-Foot by 25-Foot

Fiskars X27 Super Splitting Axe, 36-Inch
Fiskars X27 Super Splitting Axe, 36-Inch
"Why an ax? Have you ever tried to split wood for a fire with a chain-saw? Doesn't work so well. This tool is almost indestructible. Blade can't come loose. Holds a great edge. Not as rustic or aesthetically pleasing as the traditional wooden ax with a red and silver blade, but we're talking about value and function here, right?"

Neiko® 51004A Heavy-duty Cargo Loop Strap | 2-inches x 20-ft
"Throw one of these in your trunk. You might need it to get pulled out of a ditch or snowbank. (Better yet, help someone else out of a ditch or snowbank.)"
