Emergency blankets are generally made of tinfoil paper or aluminum film. They are divided into three types: double-sided gold, double-sided silver, and gold and silver. Commonly known as cold-proof blanket or sun-proof blanket, it has many functions and is easy to carry.
The main function of the emergency blanket is to play an emergency warmth in the outdoor environment. When there is an injury or hypothermia, an emergency blanket should be used to cover or put on the body immediately to prevent a sharp drop in body temperature.
The emergency blanket draped on the head, face and body can also play a role in sun protection. In an emergency, it can also be twisted into a rope for fixing and binding.
In addition, the emergency blanket also has other functions outdoors, such as: it can be used as a reflective film to send positioning signals to the air or search and rescue personnel. It can also be used as an emergency poncho when it rains outdoors. And can be used to build emergency shelters for wind and rain. It can also be used as a reflector in outdoor backlight photography to fill up light on the face of the person being photographed.
First things first, the most basic use of an emergency blanket is--as you may guess--as a blanket. When facing the elements such as wind, rain, and snow, you’ll want to have something durable and insulating to maintain your body heat and stay strong and focused in the long run. Not only can it keep your body warm, it can also be used to insulate the inside of shelters for additional heat.
Of course an emergency blanket won’t do for a long-term shelter, but it can prove to be extremely useful in the short term. Using your emergency blanket, paracord, safety pins, and duct tape, you can easily construct a tent-like shelter to protect yourself from the elements if you find yourself stranded outside. Use the duct tape to reinforce the edges, and attach the corners to rope tied to the base of trees or other stabilized structures.
If you need to cross a river or evacuate during a flood, having a flotation device will help you make the transit. However, we don’t always have a traditional flotation device at our disposal. An emergency blanket can be turned into an improvised flotation device--simply tie off the ends to create air space. Apply some duct tape to create an air bubble.
Multiuse items will be in high demand during disaster scenarios. Many people in your area may be ill-equipped, and you can trade them emergency blankets for food and other essential items you may be lacking or run low on.
