Survival is not just about getting through another day or having enough food, water and shelter to do so. True survivalists know that disaster preparedness means having the tools, supplies and knowledge to be able to handle almost any situation that should come up. Medical emergencies are an aspect of survival situations that should be expected and always prepared for. Bleeding control products should be a part of every emergency medical kit. They truly can be the difference between life and death as staunching the blood in an emergency situation should be kept as a top priority of medical care.
