Regardless of what happens in life, being prepared can make tough situations a lot less stressful and can even keep you alive. An emergency situation can occur anywhere at anytime. It usually happens when we least expect it. The emergency can range from a Category 5 Hurricane to Civil Unrest to a hunting trip gone wrong. These situations can even become a survival situation. Even though they do try their hardest, the first responders might not be able to get to you immediately. The bottom line is, no matter the situation we must always be prepared to survive on our own.
