One of the most important preps you can make as a prepper is your everyday carry (EDC). After all, emergency situations don’t always happen when you’re at home — you never know when an SHTF situation will arise.
Your EDC consists of all the things you should have on your person at all times, in case a disaster or emergency happens when you’re away from your home and your bug-out bag. This kit is more available to you and you’re much more likely to use it.
When planning your EDC, you need to think of which items you’ll need the most without going overboard. After all, if you put too much into your EDC, it might become difficult to carry around every day, defeating the purpose of having an EDC.
EDC items should be small enough that they can fit in your pocket. At the same time, they should be useful in the SHTF scenarios you might face.
Some of the most important things you can pack in your EDC are small emergency medical supplies, such as bandages, gauze pads, alcohol swabs and the like that you can use to treat minor injuries. In addition, you can also opt to take supplies such as batteries, tape, a small amount of paracord as well as a multitool and knives.
One thing to consider is where you’ll be bringing your EDC and whether that would preclude you from bringing certain items. For example, if you’re flying on an airplane, you may want to remove any knives, multi-tools and, of course, firearms from your EDC as these are prohibited from being carried aboard aircraft.
If you’re still not sure about what to pack in your EDC, here are some items you should bring with you.
You never know when you’ll find yourself in an emergency situation. As such, you should always be prepared and make sure your EDC can help you survive even if you’re away from your home.
Consider adding the above items to your EDC so you won’t be caught off guard when SHTF, regardless of where you are.
