Description/Use: Pelican, Case

Large, sturdy and waterproof Pelican Cases are ideal containers. They offer protection from the elements and convenience of being lockable and having multiple carry/grab options (including wheels).

The laser range finder is great for quickly measuring long distances or distances over rough terrain.


Kit Components

Description/Use: Garmin Oregon 450 GPS

The GPS is useful in creating your site map and marking specific points at the scene for reference (even after things have been moved). It is also handy to mark where you find debris as you move about the accident site.


Kit Components

The digital voice recorder is obviously great for any interviews you may need to conduct but it also can be used to dictate site notes to in situations where the elements are not favorable for pen/paper note taking (rain, wind/dust, etc).

Description/Use: Light, Headlamp

The headlamp is invaluable in a nighttime accident investigation but it can also be very useful when you need both of your hands to examine items or need to look in confined spaces.


Kit Components

Description/Use: Light, Flashlight (80 Lumen)

The flashlight is important and must be tough and provide enough light. Recommend you find one that is metal/hardened aluminum (aircraft grade), waterproof, LED bulb (or bulbs) and produces 80 Lumen of light or more.

Rulers and protractors are very useful in drawing your site map and as reference items in a picture to show relative size and deflection angle.


Kit Components

Recommend a steel blade and self retracting for short ground distance measuring.


Kit Components

Description/Use: 100’ Tape Measure

Maintaining team health and hygiene on site is important, especially if you have to handle dirty/oily items.


Kit Components

Description/Use: Large Tarp (9x12)

A large tarp will help if you have to cover a site or ground markings to prevent loss of evidence. It can also be used to wrap up large exhibits/evidence. Finally it makes a good shelter from sun/rain if you need it.


Kit Components

Description/Use: Twin Respirators (2 ea/expected team size)

Kit Components

Description/Use: First Aid Kit

Accident sites are dangerous places (sharps, bent metal, broken glass, etc), being prepared for on-site first aid protects personnel from possible infections due to delayed treatment.


Kit Components

Kit Components

Description/Use: Administrative Electronic Items

Again, things you like to use but at a minimum laptop and cell phone depending on the size/remoteness of the site. Keep your eye out for new and helpful technology, like the SD card to CD transfer device pictured here.

Closing Statements

No kit is ever “complete” because there are many variables on an accident site that can change your needs. A kit should continue to grow, add things you find you need and remove or reduce items that never get used.

Good Luck, preparing for your next “unplanned event”
