Important Notes

  1. All items must be new.
  2. Do not wash any of the items as they will be considered used.
  3. Please remove all packaging.
  4. All emergency kits are carefully planned to make them usable in the greatest number of situations. Since strict rules often govern product entry into international countries, it is important that kits contain only the requested items nothing more.
  5. DO NOT include any personal notes, money or additional material in the kits. These things must be painstakingly removed and will delay the shipment.
