Survival & Medical Questions & Answers

What type of Med-Kit should I consider purchasing?

To further assist with this process, please refer to our unique Medical Kit Identifier. Generally, you want a kit that will accommodate for the number of people involved in your planned activity, the length of the activity, and a kit that will accommodate for the majority of the most likely injuries that might occur.

How important is a fire-starting kit to my emergency preparedness?

Anyone who finds themselves rubbing two sticks together in the woods to make fire is going to be kicking themselves when the realize how affordable and durable fire-starting kits can be. Whether you just need some combustible material or the ability to keep tinder ready and waiting there is a product for you. Bear Grylls is the big name in the game as his survival shows made the notion of surviving famous.

Most basic survival kits will offer some sort of fire starting element, but be certain. Creating fire like a caveman in this modern age is just waste of energy and resources. In many survival situations you can indeed survive without fire, but why eat raw squirrel to survive when you can BBQ that tasty critter. In other cases where temperature is a factor, fire can mean the difference between life and death.

What kind of guaranteed performance do I get from survival lighting?

The industry has done us all a favor by testing and rating various lighting methods with standards we can trust. It has been our experience that when a survival brand says a flashlight can run for 16 hours of continuous use on high mode that the outcome is pretty spot on. Consider both the need to project light in a beam as well as standard lamps to light an individual location. Keeping an accurate count of the various lighting ratings will let you know just how much light you have left so that you can ration energy accordingly. Then, don’t forget about the trusty glow sticks that are there when you need them. Glow sticks can provide just the right amount of light when you need it most.

What am I looking for in a medkit?

Survival situations are inherently dangerous by nature and injury comes easily. When looking for a medkit you have to run through the basics of survival. One of the first core tenants of basic first aid is to stop the bleeding. If you can’t stop the bleeding nothing else will matter much. Don’t forget the medical scissors to cut away clothing and straps. Then, you have the medicines necessary to prevent infection. In a survival scenario, the ability to stop an infection could be the difference between life and death.

It also wouldn’t hurt in a survival scenario to consider adding an inflatable air cast. Professional medical care may not be easily available and this could make the difference between being able to extract someone from a dangerous situation. Medkits in general can be as extravagant as you need them to be on a professional level. However, they can also be as basic enough and small enough to throw in the glove compartment of your car. The key is to have one on hand and presuppose injury will happen.

What am I missing from my emergency preparedness kit?

The short answer is most likely something. It is difficult to run through all of the what ifs in a survival scenario as the dangers and pitfalls are as many as the imagination can hold. Then there is the inexplicable realities of human nature. One has flashlights and radios, but forgot the batteries. They have a great shelter half, but didn’t think about how handy a short piece of rope would be in mounting it.

Just perusing through our catalogue of items is a great way to think through your scenarios. We’ve done our best to think of as many products as could be useful to you when it matters most to those you love. If you see a product we don’t offer be sure and shoot us a message and we will do our best to bring to you from DNA Tactical.

I recently used my Med-Kit, do I need to consider purchasing a replacement?

Some medical kits are designed for a one time use only. DNA Tactical strongly urges you in replacing any one-time-use Med-Kit used in the field. Other medical-kits contain many components that may themselves be a one-time use item. A good practice is to inventory your medical kits every 6 months or after each time used in practice and ensure that all items are replaced or more importantly, nothing has expired.

What type of survival tools should I consider purchasing to increase my "Survivability"?

While you can't foresee nor plan for every possible activity, encounter, emergency or even disaster, you can certainly be better prepared by planning for these events with the following:

Shelter
Hydration
First-Aid
Trauma
Nutrition
Hygiene
Protection
