As you may know, not too long ago we began supporting the First Responders who volunteer with the disaster response veterans service organization, Team Rubicon. One of the important items we include in our First Responder Kits are Paracord “Survival” Bracelets. Not only are the bracelets really cool-looking, they can actually be used to save a life in an emergency situation.
