50 Uses for an Emergency Blanket

An emergency blanket, sometimes referred to as a first aid blanket, space blanket, Mylar, thermal or weather blanket, is used in emergencies to reduce heat loss in a person’s body caused by thermal radiation, water evaporation and convection. Many people think, since they have never needed one, that it’s a waste of space to put one in their pack, but this is a multi-use item that can serve so many more functions than it was designed for. When spending time outdoors I prefer to bring multi-use items to save space and weight. An emergency blanket has tons of uses.
