Fortunately, most of us will never experience a true life-or-death emergency. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be prepared on the off-chance we somehow draw the short straw.

Although it’s virtually impossible to anticipate everything that could possibly go wrong, there are a few life-threatening scenarios for which you can plan to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Following is an assortment of everyday and specialty items that could save your life. Some you may already have on hand, and others you’ll want to order ASAP.

The best part? All of these products cost less than $50, and many are under $15 each. That’s a small price to pay to save a life — especially your own.

We do, however, recommend you compare prices around the web to be certain you’re scoring the lowest price.

Also, note that although prices you see here will almost always be accurate, they do sometimes differ slightly from what you will find when you check Amazon.
