The Department of Treasury has put out an ad for survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system.
Contracts for survival kits are usually made for the military, or law enforcement such as the FBI. The emergency supplies would be for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), which conducts on-site reviews of banks throughout the country. The government is willing to spend up to $200,000 on the kits, according to the solicitation released on Dec. The survival kits must come in a fanny-pack or backpack that can fit all of the items, including a 33-piece personal first aid kit with “decongestant tablets,” a variety of bandages, and medicines.
The kits must also include a “reusable solar blanket” 52 by 84 inches long, a 2,400-calorie food bar, “50 water purification tablets,” a “dust mask,” “one-size fits all poncho with hood,” a rechargeable lantern with built-in radio, and an “Air-Aid emergency mask” for protection against airborne viruses. The Emergency Preparedness & Response Specialist is a professional in the field of emergency preparedness. Someone in the decision-making process has a close friend, relative or associate in the survival-kit (or components thereof) business. Thats right, its like the worthless gear we had in the Air Force that we were forced to use instead of good gear.
FeaturesLifeStraw® Water Purification: This powerful device filters dangerous bacteria and protozoa, exceeding EPA standards for water filtration. Old man winter has finally arrived and with it the need for an adequate winter survival kit. The snow is falling, the temperatures are dropping and the great outdoors is beckoning.
However, many make the mistake of going into this extreme environment without adequate preparation. Whether you’re skiing, sledding or just driving to some appointment, during the winter a simple activity can quickly turn into a winter survival situation. Make no mistake about it; winter can be both a deceptive and deadly time when it comes to survival. Getting caught in a winter survival situation without proper gear or clothing can do more than ruin your fun – it could take your life!
While no one plans to get into a crisis or emergency during the winter, everyone should have a plan as to what they would do if it ever happens. Having the proper knowledge and well-practiced skills is of utmost importance.
Equally important is having a relatively lightweight winter survival kit put together and carried with you at all times. Following is how to assemble a basic kit winter survival kit and is based upon the type of kit the author has used and recommends. For added support we used the Last Chance Belt to the Tan Molle Shoulder bag, which then became the waist belt for the winter survival kit. For carrying convenience you can use the single shoulder strap that comes with the Tan Molle Shoulder Bag or you can purchase an inexpensive double shoulder H-harness and attach it to the kit. Any winter survival kit requires a solid knife that can stand up to the rigors of a harsh environment. For this winter survival kit we included the Bushcraft Mora knifewith fire steel and diamond sharpener. This knife and fire steel combo work exceptionally well. Coupled with the mini inferno fire starters and some fatwood, it is the perfect way to get a fire going even in a winter survival situation. Wool will keep in approximately 80% of your body heat even when wet, doesn’t burn well so you can get closer to your fire (Note that sparks will smolder and burn holes in your wool blanket) and when stretched over head can also be used as a temporary rain shelter.
Tip: Roll up your emergency tarp and plastic ground sheet in the wool blanket and tie the roll using paracord or bank line. An extra pair of wool socks. These are useful for makeshift mittens or to put over your boots for added traction in icy conditions.


Winter is a wonderful time to get out into the great outdoors and enjoy the environment the Creator made for us. There are fewer people on the trails, the air smells crisp and adventure waits around every bend. With a little forethought and planning a proper winter survival kit may be put together and enjoyed. If you plan to cook soup, stew, or any other type of one pot meal over an open fire, a campfire tripod is a must have accessory for your next camping trip. If you take your campfire cooking seriously and are looking for a gadget you can use as a grill and a holder for your pots, the Quad Pod Campfire Grill might be the perfect choice for you. If you love the taste of rotisserie cooked chicken or other foods, consider adding an open fire rotisserie and spit grill to your collection of camping supplies.
A hinged camp cooker is a terrific tool for preparing toast or grilled cheese sandwiches over an open campfire. If you plan to enjoy the company of your friends and family members while roasting marshmallows or hot dogs over an open fire, be sure to include several camping forks in your stockpile of campfire cooking equipment and supplies. A long handled grill basket is a terrific tool for cooking both meats and vegetables over a campfire.
I am a bit confused about the prices I saw when I looked it up – ranging everywhere from $200 to over $600.
Also I wanted to add when buying extra mags make sure they have steel feeder lips on them( where the bullet transfers to the chamber), the plastic ones just don’t hold up and is a good guide on how high quality the mag is made. As a retired gun store clerk I have had the pleasure and honor of handling most of our modern handguns shotguns assualt weapons of various caliber’s. Smallest and most accurate (for the price), and cheapest to mod, great gun for SHTF situation.
I have one with the Tactical Solutions threaded barrel, Hogue Overmold stock, and the mag release that goes under the trigger guard. You will enjoy spending days working and socialising in your woodland, but if you go frequently, you will soon find that there are some basic tools and bits of equipment that you would prefer to leave there. In our recent survey of about 150 owners of small woodlands, we found that about half had installed some shelter or storage in their woodland.
It is also possible to bring a mobile caravan into your woodland and use it for storage, and if you like for overnight stays.
On day 30 we will charge 50% of the remaining balance, followed by the final payment on day 60. The added stove and canteen cup are great for cooking and eating. And, it all nests together for one great package which fits in a standard USGI Molle canteen pouch. You already have a knife and any old pointed stick will work for a fork, but a spoon is a really indispensible part of the winter survival kit. It should be stainless steel or titanium, as a plastic spoon will melt in a hot canteen cup, food canister or when stirring your meal over coals.
Be sure to pack the right type of campfire cooking equipment for the types of meals that you are planning to prepare. This piece of equipment allows you to safely and easily position a kettle at the ideal height over your campfire.


Whether you enjoy cooking on a grill or over an open campfire, this versatile item is a great choice. Be sure that you have access to plenty of dry wood and a supply of matches or some other type of fire starter.
Although I don’t own a firearm, I think this looks like it would be a good place to start.
In fact, after he came home he was in our backyard building a dakota fire(I think it is called that?). And with the British climate, there will inevitably be visits when you need to shelter from a rain storm, if only to eat your sandwiches. The regulations allow the construction of buildings that are necessary for forestry purposes as “permitted development”. There is no need to apply for permission beforehand, but you may not be allowed by the local authority to leave it there permanently, and there is a regulation that you are not allowed to sleep there more than 28 nights in the year. Cast iron pots and Dutch ovens are perfect outdoor cooking vessels for baked beans, side dishes, and main courses that require simmering. They are all essentially the same rifle made by the same company just with different stock options.
I have mine with a wood stock, 2×7 scope with see thu mounts to use iron sites if needed. If you plan to do forestry work yourself in your woodland, you can reasonably claim to need some storage for equipment and shelter for yourself and those who are working with you. If you are doing a lot of work, and need to stay more than that, you can get permission to do so as a “seasonal worker”.
Not to sound too ignorant but aside from how cool they may look how does the difference between a wood stock, a plastic stock, and a fiberglass stock constitute such a price variance? ANY way my two cents is that a good peep sighted bolt action rifle is the best thing for a civilian. You will need to apply for this permitted development, which is not as large an issue as planning permission, nor as expensive. Can the rifle be purchased without a stock too (I didn’t see any for sale) as it seems that would be the price to base accessory costs off. He had been saving his money for a while and could not be happier about his knife he got at your store.We cannot thank you enough for allowing Griffin to attend your class. This has been a passion of his for a long time and to be able to attend a class on survival skills meant so much to him.
And a scene from “Band Of Brothers” Where Bull pulls a cigar out of his stock and lights up after being rescued!
