Assembly Directions

Place all loose items on top of paper. Turn items sideways and slide into the cloth bag. Fold over the top of the bag so loose items don’t fall out.

Important Notes
All items must be new.
All emergency kits are carefully planned to make them usable in the greatest number of situations. Due to the fat that strict rules often govern product entry into international countries, it is important that kits contain only the requested items, nothing more. 
Do not include any personal notes, money, or additional material in the kits. These things must be painstakingly removed and will delay the shipment.
