About Survival

Survival Emergency Solutions is a leading innovator in first aid emergency solutions. Founded in 1988 by twin brothers Jerry and Tim Tyrrell in response to personal tragedy, Survival’s mission is to offer safety and security to every individual around the globe.

Beginning 30 years ago with an First Aid Emergency Handbook – which won an Australian Design Award and has sold more than two million copies worldwide – Survival has since developed a full range of pioneering first aid products and recently released the latest version of its iFirstAid app.

Over the past three decades, Survival has given away more than 50,000 First Aid KITs and educated countless individuals in proper first aid practices to support its mission of creating a safer world for us all.
