More Suggestions for your Evacuation Kit

  Every once in awhile I like to profile products of one kind or another that I have found in my travels.  As frequent followers will know, I do not receive any financial benefits from any of the profiles and information I bring to readers.

These are chocolate flavored.

This might be a welcome addition to an evacuation kit.

Ultra-Long 8 to 10 Year Shelf-Life
180 Tablets - A 15 Day Food Supply for 1 Person

A convenient, compact and lightweight food ration for any emergency. These high calorie food tablets provide full vitamin and mineral requirements plus protein for strength, carbohydrates, dextrose and lactose for fast energy, as well as fatty acids for long endurance, malt taste.

The recommended daily consumption is 12 tablets per day. These really are a true survival food that you could live on for up to several months in an emergency situation. Shelf life is estimated to be to 10 years plus. Tests have shown negligible loss of nutrients after storage at temperatures higher than normal.

Each heavy duty plastic container contains 180 tablets (15 day supply). Inside each container, under the lid is a plastic bag in which you can carry the tablets and utilize the bottle as a water canteen. Made to easily fit into a BDU leg pocket.

The Esbit Pocket Stove

When closed, easy to transport which makes it excellent for evacuation kits.
Appearance when opened.
How this may be used. Cup is not included.

The Esbit stove is a practical and reliable way to know that you'll be able to boil water and heat liquids anytime you need to. Weighing only 3.25 ounces and small enough to fit in a pocket, this compact stove is perfect for hunters, campers and hikers or to have ready at home in case of an emergency. Esbit is a well known manufacturer of other travel stoves of larger sizes.  This model, and a starter set of fuel cubes sells for around ten dollars plus postage, and once in awhile, someone runs a special with free postage.
Each long burning fuel cube weighs only 0.5 ounces, does not liquefy when burning, is non-explosive and burns well at higher altitudes. In addition the fuel cubes work well as a fire starting aid. Esbit stoves and fuel are used by various NATO forces, expeditions, disaster relief organizations and a wide variety of outdoor enthusiasts.
The Esbit Pocket Stove is a remarkably simple and utterly dependable item. The small stove is unfolded and placed on a level, non-flammable surface. A fuel cube is positioned on the base plate, your metal cup or pot is then placed on the uprights. The fuel cube is lit with a match or lighter and will burn 12-15 minutes.
We suggest including a piece of aluminum foil with the stove, large enough to fashion a wind screen if the weather turns windy. With any open stove, wind will dissipate heat and increase cooking times.

  • Each cube burns 12 - 15 minutes
  • Two position uprights accomodate most cups and small pots
  • Can be extinguished and relit
  • Fuel does not produce visible smoke or sparks and is environmentally safe
  • Burns well at higher altitudes
