Day One. The most essential things are protection from exposure and sustenance, in the form of easily digestible caloric intake.

Timing is critical - on the first day it is probably impossible to provide instant adequate housing for everyone. So what can be provided to maximize chances of survival?

Airdrop hats and chocolate[edit | edit source]

Easily transportable items that can help survival are:

  • Hats and socks - warm "beanie" style hats greatly reduce heatloss. Warm socks are valuable, though less critical as most people will already have socks.
  • Chocolate - energy dense food keeps people warm. Chocolate is easily digested, needs no preparation, and due to its fat content is more energy dense than pure sugar.[verification needed]
