Survival planning is nothing more than realizing some- thing 

could happen that would put you in a survival sit- uation and,

 with that in mind, taking steps to increase your chances of 

survival. Survival planning means preparation.


Preparation means having survival items and knowing how to 

use them People who live insnow regions prepare their vehicles

 for poor road conditions. They put snow tires on their vehicles, 

add extra weight in the back for traction, and they carry a shovel, salt, and a blanket. Another example of prepa- ration is finding 

the emergeny exits on an aircraft when you board it for a flight. Preparation could also mean knowing your intended route of 

travel and familiarizing yourself with the area. Finally, 

emergency planning is essential.


3-1IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING


Detailed prior planning is essential in potential survival situations. In- cluding survival considerations in mission planning will enhance your chances of survival if an emergency occurs. For example, if your job re- quires that 

you work in a small, enclosed area that limits what you 

can carry on your person, plan where you can put your rucksack or your load-bearing equipment. Put it where it 

will not prevent you from get- ting out of the area quickly,

yet where it is readily accessible.


One important aspect of prior planning is preventive 

medicine. Ensuring that you have no dental problems and 

that your immunizations are cur- rent will help you avoid potential dental or health problems. A dental problem in a survival situation will reduce your ability to cope with 

other problems that you face. Failure to keep your shots current may mean your body is not immune to diseases 

that are prevalent in the area.


Preparing and carrying a survival kit is as important as 

the considerations mentioned above. All Army aircraft 

normally have survival kits on board for the type area(s) 

over which they will fly. There are kits for over- water 

survival, for hot climate survival, and an aviator survival 

vest (see Appendix A for a description of these survival 

kits and their contents). If you are not an aviator, you will probably not have access to the survival vests or survival 

kits. However, if you know what these kits contain, it will

 help you to plan and to prepare your own survival kit.

Even the smallest survival kit, if properly prepared, is invaluable when faced with a survival problem. Before

 making your survival kit, however, consider your unit’s mission, the operational environment, and the equipment

 and vehicles assigned to your unit.


SURVIVAL KITS


The environment is the key to the types of items you will

 need in your survival kit. How much equipment you put 

in your kit depends on how you will carry the kit. A kit 

carried on your body will have to be smaller than one 

carried in a vehicle. 


Always layer your survival kit, 

keeping the most important items on your body. For 

example, your map and compass should always be on 

your body. Carry less important items on your load-

bearing equipment. Place bulky items in the rucksack.


3-2


In preparing your survival kit, select items you can use for more than one purpose. If you have two items that will

 serve the same function, pick the one you can use for 

another function. Do not duplicate items, as this increases

 your kit’s size and weight.


Your survival kit need not be elaborate. You need only functional items that will meet your needs and a case to 

hold the items. For the case, you might want to use a 

Band-Aid box, a first aid case, an ammunition pouch, or another suitable case. This case should be–

Water repellent or waterproof. Easy to carry or attach to 

your body. Suitable to accept varisized components. 

Durable.


In your survival kit, you should have— First aid items.

Water purification tablets or drops. Fire starting 

equipment. Signaling items. Food procurement items.

Shelter items.

Some examples of these items are– Lighter, metal match, waterproof matches. Snare wire. Signaling mirror. Wrist compass. Fish and snare line. Fishhooks. Candle. Small 

hand lens. Oxytetracycline tablets (diarrhea or infection). 

Water purification tablets. Solar blanket. Surgical blades. Butterfly sutures.


3-3

Condoms for water storage. Chap Stick. Needle and 

thread. Knife.

Include a weapon only if the situation so dictates. Read 

about and prac- tice the survival techniques in this manual. Consider your unit’s mission and the environment in 

which your unit will operate. Then prepare your survival 

kit.
