Not everyone might suspect just how important a blanket is. But when you take a closer look into just how vital it is to maintain our body temperature, you may think twice when it comes time to stock up on medical supplies. Even a difference of just a few degrees in our body temperature can have extremely harmful effects on our many internal processes. If a below normal body temperature is maintained for too long, major internal processes can start to shut down in a hurry. Emergency blankets help maintain vital body heat during a variety of catastrophic situations. While maintaining a normal body temperature is always important, itís especially important in the case of bodily injuries. Maintaining a healthy body temperature can help the body maintain its own ability to heal itself and prevent someone from going into shock. These blankets are excellent for immediately improving a patientsí chances of survival.

These emergency type blankets are usually made of heavy wool that features multiples weaves for a windproof and dense coverage. The higher quality blankets will also feature materials and fabrics that help to wick away perspiration form a personís body. This too helps to keep oneís body temperature evenly balanced. You should also look for emergency covers that feature fire retardant or fire proof materials for an added degree of safety.

More than that, many long distance wilderness hikers have invested in safety blankets that fold up into highly compact forms and promote ease of transportation; as well as reflective strips.
