Do you like camping, climbing, hiking or any other activities outdoors? Well, with summer on the horizon in the northern hemisphere now is the time to get ready to enjoy the great outdoors.
However, are you prepared when something goes wrong? Outdoor safety experts recommend that you should be able to survive up to 72 hours in case of emergencies such as serious injuries, bad weather, or getting lost.
The Wisdom Survival Kits company was founded in 2012 by “the vision of helping people prepare for the worst so that they can live their best”. It is a small retail business looking to cater to environmental needs in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Wisdom Survival is designed to help people prepare an emergency kit, starting with most important items, such as food, water and a battery operated or wind-up flashlight and organize it so it’s easy to find.
A wide range of survival kits are available on the shop’s web-site. You can find a range of first-aid kits, special automotive emergency kits, books, survival tools, gears and gadgets for safe travelling.
You can even build your own survival kit and customize it with items like water and food, knife, matches, personal hygiene, sleeping bag or tent and other things that you think would be useful in case of an unexpected scenario or customize the Wisdom branded kits.
