Foil Rescue Blankets are an essential item to stock in your first aid kit, survival kit or adventure kit. They are designed to prevent shock and are ideal for accident and emergency situations. They are also commonly used on camping/hiking trips, or on endurance athletes who have completed a gruelling activity like running a marathon. A foil rescue blanket, also known as a space blanket, mylar blanket, first aid blanket, emergency blanket, thermal blanket and weather blanket, is typically used by emergency services to prevent/counter hypothermia and shock. But, foil rescue blankets have also been known to have an additional benefit: lost campers have used foil rescue blankets as an improvised locator-beacon for searches, because the metallic surface appearance of the silver rescue blankets flashes brightly in the sun. The Medicare Foil Rescue Blanket keeps in body heat and preserves body temperature. Its low weight and compact size (120cm x 90cm), means that it can easily be carried in any back pack and so it is suitable for outdoor enthusiasts, as well as emergency workers.
