Protect Your Air Supply.
AIR: #1 On the list of Basic Essentials for Survival.
Without 3-minutes of clean safe air – you will die.
It’s that simple. So, AIR – and how to clean it – is very important and critical to your survival.
Your disaster survival kit should address protection from poor quality or dangerous air. Let it be from an outbreak of the Flu to a Chemical or Radiological accident – you need to ensure the quality of the air that you breathe is not going to harm you, or your family.
