How to pack an emergency kit? (Tips of rescuers)

In the current difficult time for the country, rescuers advise citizens to pack a so-called emergency kit. 

It is usually a durable and comfortable backpack with a volume of 25 liters or a sports bag. The emergency kit contains a basic set of things that may be needed in any emergency situation such as a natural disaster or a manmade disaster. All items must be new, i.e. not used by the owner in everyday life. The total weight of the emergency kit must not exceed 50 kg.

First of all, it is necessary to put in the emergency kit important documents (passport, driving license, documents for real estate) in plastic packaging. They should be always at hand. It is also recommended to have a certain amount of money and necessary duplicate keys.

A set of replacement underwear, thread and needle must be prepared. Among hygiene products, it is usually recommended to have a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap, towels, toilet paper and so on. It is also recommended to bring a map with a compass, a notepad and a pencil, a flashlight, candles and matches, a knife, a sleeping bag and other necessary things.

Emergency kit must include a first aid kit that includes bandages, adhesive tape, cotton, iodine, tourniquet, syringe, activated carbon (intoxication), acetaminophen (antipyretic), painkillers and other medications.

In addition, it is necessary to have a set of metal utensils and food for several days. It is advisable to have food with a long shelf life and which can be used without pretreatment. And most importantly, a supply of drinking water for 1-2 days must be prepared.
