Road Flares

After being involved with the Af Survival school, there is one tip I always recommend to students, outdoors men or hunters; attach 2 road flares to their packs.

A road flare while being relatively light in weight will provide excellent benefits should the need arise.

They can be used for emergency signals (seen for miles) even during the day. They can be lit in the Rain or snow and will continue to burn at a high enough temperature to start a fire for you.

They have even been used to ward off animals in rare situations.

I work for a PD here in North Carolina and I know how handy flares can be. I keep two in my bug out pack.
