34. Cell Phone

In an emergency, it’s imperative to have a phone to call for help. When a dangerous situation arises, a phone is necessary to call 911 and have medical professionals by your side within minutes. You don’t need a fancy smartphone to keep your family safe.

If you want to have additional insurance, you can get an inexpensive phone to keep in your first aid kit. A phone that operates by purchasing minutes can stay in the package and be ready to use when you need it. When you call 911 from a cell phone, disclose your location immediately, and describe your surroundings. Stay calm and speak clearly as you tell them the nature of your emergency.

35. Solar Charger

Most cell phones have individual batteries or batteries that cannot be removed. If you choose to keep a cell phone in your first aid kit, you need to have a charger too. A solar-powered charger can keep your phone or other electronics running in an emergency.

By using a solar-powered charger, you eliminate the need to carry extra batteries. These types of chargers quickly get power from the sun, and you can boost them while you charge your phone. Be sure to keep an extra charging cable that works with your phone in the first aid kit. Look for models that are 8000mAh or higher for more efficient charging power.
