There are some who have specialty survival kits and equipment for those who have special needs, for example those with mental disabilities. Survival kits are made up of different types of tools that are essential to surviving.
Knife is perhaps one of the most important tools used in survival. The survival knife has a long blade and is sharp, which makes it possible to cut through objects and other substances and to open cans. Survival knife can also be used to break down tin cans.
Hammer is another survival tool. It can be used to break open cans and cut metal bars and can also be used as an effective weapon to fight or defend against intruders. Hammer can also be used to open locked door and use as a hammer to crack the locks of safes. Survival Hammer should not be used as a weapon though; they are not suited for this job.
Saw is another survival tool used to cut material and cut wood. Saw is also able to cut through doors and other heavy objects.
Saw is also essential for emergency survival but should only be used if the person is not threatened by someone else. For example if there is a fire and the fire has started on the inside then using a knife is a good option as the fire is contained in the inside. If the fire has started outside, using a fire extinguisher and a knife will help to put the fire out. Also, the person is unable to get out of the home the person may have to use the saw.
A fire extinguisher is used in case of emergency to put out small or basic fire. This can be of help to those who are in a room or house that is badly damaged. Fire Extinguishers can also be used to put out a fire that has started elsewhere.
Fire extinguishers come in different types, from those that use chemicals and other things to those that only use a spark. fire hose. Fire extinguishers vary in size and can either be installed under the hood or on the dash.
