Flash Pack: 10 Minute Earthquake Survival Pack

My invention that I have created is a natural disaster relief pack. It is a basic flashlight packed with multiple resources needed during a natural disaster. The main natural disaster the invention focuses on is earthquakes. I decided to build a relief pack because about ten thousand people die every year from earthquakes. With my invention it can save the lives of many people stuck in the place of an earthquake.

Step 1: Materials

The invention would come pre packed with:

  • A LARGE Flashlight
  • Gauze pads
  • Small Multi-Purpose tool (I used Swiss + Tech)
  • Scissors
  • Band aids
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Antiseptic towelette
  • A compass
  • Gauze stretch band
  • An ace band
  • A pocket knife
  • Extra Batteries (Make sure they are the right type)
  • A whistle

Step 2: Instructions

Instructions: To use the Flash Pack is very simple. It would come pre-packed and made for you. All you need to do is unscrew the top of the flashlight and pull out any of the materials you need. Also, if you want to put anything you want inside go right ahead. Make sure your not damaging any other materials or the flashlight itself in the process though.

Step 3: Restrictions

Restrictions: If you decide to put some of your own materials inside, the material has to be small enough so it doesn’t go past the batteries to turn the flashlight on. Also, when you unscrew the lid of the flashlight make sure it is closed all the way before use.

    if you have room a couple sewing needles (taped inside the lid of a floss box) will give you sutures, gear / clothing repair, and a way to remove splinters.
