Emergencies can happen when you least expect it, and preppers know that being prepared can mean the difference between life and death. But emergencies don’t have to catch you completely off guard, not unless you have everyday carry items that will cover all the bases, from little inconveniences to critical survival situations.

Everyday carry (EDC) items are some critical items you should always have on you, so you are prepared to deal with whatever life throws at you, at any given time.
Critical survival issues that your EDC has to address include fresh air, fresh water, food, shelter, and fire. However, it’s more likely for you to encounter little inconveniences every day, which you also need to prepare for.
Nobody wants to encounter SHTF situations, but in case of one, your EDC has to be sufficient enough to address the following critical needs:
Medical issues may also arise, and you may need to deal with them yourself if professional medical help is not readily available. Besides a basic first aid kit, consider including a needle and thread for sutures, bandages, and an Epipen. If you suffer from chronic health issues like heartburn or high blood pressure, you will need to carry at least one dose of your personal medications.
You also have to be prepared to defend yourself against anyone that may want to do you harm. For self-defense, consider adding pepper spray, a tactical pen, or a Kubotan to your EDC. Other useful self-defense tools are a whistle to signal for help or a small mirror to signal if you are trapped and can’t yell loud enough to attract attention.
The following items are going to make your life a lot easier, allow you to deal with emergencies, and to complete everyday tasks more efficiently. (h/t to RecycledFireFighter.com.)
