I can see all the possibilities that an emergency blanket could be used for indoors and outdoors. To be honest I have never used one, so I bought one.
I have used foil in a mobile home on the windows. Then I saw this one house we would go past and they had the most unusual curtains. I wondered where they got them. Now I know!!
Now my grandpop would have used one for his well house and his baby chicks. Here are the many uses I came up with:
- reflective for signaling
- rig up beside a fire as a heat reflector
- radiant cooker
- catch rain
- ground cover
- wrap your cooler
- tent roof
- wind proof
- privacy wall
An emergency blanket comes in a package about the size of a deck of playing cards, and with a little bit of effort could be a lifesaver. Put one in your vehicle, tackle box, backpack, but the emergency blanket I bought is going on my bath room window.
