Disaster relief kits were a tool kit designed for use in emergency situations in populated areas; from the largest cities to the smallest, most isolated village.


A sealed and compact container, a disaster relief kit contained a variety of items useful to teams of relief workers and survivors of disasters. Made from chemically treated duraplast, the pack could be recycled for use as water and food storage units, and were buoyant enough to serve as a personal flotation device. Among the items contained within the kit were ration packs for four individuals to eat for a week and first aid essentials. Additionally, the case held a micro-generator with a week's worth of power, that could operate a lamp, miniature stove, water purifier, and other tools.[1]
