In addition to a first-aid kit, carry a light-weight survival kit that will help sustain you for a day or two. The kit should contain the following, all of which can fit in a small packet:

  • Waterproof fire-starting materials
  • A signaling device (usually a whistle and possibly a mirror) and a large square of fluorescent orange fabric
  • Means to purify water
  • A few high-energy food bars or packs of trail mix (nuts and dried fruit)
  • A large square of plastic or a space blanket
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Dental floss for tying a shelter together
