Supply Kit

Posted: May 19, 2013 in Supply Kit

The supply kit functions not only helps you keep track of what items you have and their expiration dates, but it will also suggest items for each emergency. Items can be added and edited by the user through easy to use prompts in the options menu. The kit can be filtered to only show items relating to each emergency. You can even search for stores that carry items you are looking for (requires Google Maps).
