DEERS is an acronym which stands for Disaster and Emergency Equipment for Rescue and Survival. It’s an Australian owned company, based in Cooktown, and produces a range of survival kits which are a fantastic idea for all 4WDers to keep in their vehicles. Their basic survival kit sells for the price of a case of beer and may save your life. It includes a waterproof ziplock bag, an eleven-in-one function stainless steel survival card, a magnesium solid flint, cotton balls and Vaseline (used as fire starters), wire saw, whistle, mirror, compass, basic fishing kit, and two metres of snare wire. The kit is less than 20cm long and weighs just 150 grams, meaning that it’s lightweight and compact enough to leave in the glovebox or carry in your backpack.
