Important Kit Assembly Information
  • All items included in kits must be NEW items.  
  • 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.  
  • Do NOT include any personal notes, money or additional materials in the kits. These things must be painstakingly removed and will delay the shipment.
 Packing Kits
  • Box Weight. Each packed box cannot exceed 66 pounds.
