Designed for those determined to be prepared In Case of Emergency (I.C.E.), the Rescue Essentials I.C.E. bucket has the tools and supplies needed to weather the initial phases of a natural or man-made disaster, and is a great start for a long-term survival kit. The fully loaded polymer bucket weighs 12 pounds, 12 ounces and measures 10x10x13 making it suitable for storage in any home or vehicle, and the re-sealable lid means supplies will stay safe and dry even as components are used, augmented and replenished.
The I.C.E. bucket's contents are too myriad to list here, but examples like the ETON FRX2 (a hand- and solar-powered radio, light and device charger), the Sawyer mini water filter, ponchos, a hatchet, water- and windproof matches, trauma/first aid supplies, compass, nutrition bars and even playing cards serve as proof that the kit was designed to address the needs of food, water, heat, shelter, communication, hygiene and even entertainment. Each bucket comes with a detailed inventory, and perishable items are clearly marked with expiration dates both on the individual packaging and on the inventory card. Supply quantities are based upon a four-person household.
