Survival Emergency Solutions has been leading the innovation of first aid products in Australia since 1988. Twin brothers Jerry and Tim Tyrrell founded Survival in response to the cot death of their 1 month old niece, Caroline. Sadly, Jerry was unable to resuscitate Caroline. He felt at a loss during the crisis with the realisation he didn’t know exactly what to do.
Jerry responded by developing the Emergency First Aid Handbook which detailed and illustrated the essential steps in first aid. The book won an Australian Design Award and has sold over 2 million copies world wide.
Following the success of Survival’s publications, Survival turned it’s attention to developing the best first aid kit in Australia. Historically, first aid kits were either in boxes or bags that spilled out when you opened them. Survival realised that it was nearly impossible to find the correct piece of equipment during an emergency. This delay could have been the difference between life and serious injury or death.
Survival developed a number of world class first aid kits that have been built to last in the most rugged environment. Our range of kits can be used in just about any circumstance.
Survival continues to provide the highest quality products that simply make sense and are easy to use. Find out why over one million Australian’s love Survival’s products with our kits and publications now being sold all around the globe.
We know that accidents happen. What we don't know is when they will occur as we never truly know what is around the corner. Millions of our customers have prepared their homes, workplace, family car, work vehicles, 4WD's, boats and caravans, whilst many more won't leave home for an outdoors adventure without one of our portable first aid kits. We certainly don't leave home without one and we want to make sure that everyone else worldwide has an opportunity to be as best prepared as possible for an emergency.
