Disasters strike anywhere, anytime. You can find a place away from active volcanoes so you won’t have to worry about eruptions and lava. You can stay away from coastlines to avoid flooding, tsunami, hurricanes and storm surges. Of course, you wouldn’t want to live on top of a fault for fear of earthquakes. Want a cabin in the woods? Think about forest fire. Terrorists? They’re practically everywhere biding their time before they unleash chaos. Anywhere you go, danger seems imminent, but that doesn’t mean you have to live in fear. You just need to be ready, to be prepared for anything.
One of the most important skills that a survivor must acquire is the ability to prioritize. To stay alive in a survival situation, the very basic needs of the human body must first be met. This includes water, food, and thermo-regulation. This book will teach you how to meet all these needs even in the direst circumstances. Within these pages, you’ll find useful knowledge on where to obtain and how to purify water whether you’re in the dessert, in a frigid environment, or stranded at sea.
Through this book, you will learn how to distinguish edible plants from non-edible vegetation. More than that, this book will teach you how to prepare edible plant food in ways which will make them more palatable. When stranded in the wild, resourcefulness may mark the difference as to whether you survive or perish. This book will teach you how to make use of the things that are available around you whether it’s for making a fire, for catching dinner, or for treating an infected wound.
This book has been specifically written for beginners who are interested in acquiring the basic set of skills for surviving in a crisis situation from dry land to sea. This book consists of easy-to-follow step-by-step guides designed to benefit the outdoor newbie. If you are interested in the outdoors, if you travel a lot, or if you live in a disaster prone area, read on. Read this book because the knowledge that could save you may be resting within these pages. Read this book simply because your life and those of your loved ones’ are worth preserving.
One of the most overlooked, yet vitally important, aspects of any survival situation is medical treatment. Following a catastrophic event, emergency medical responders will be overburdened (to say the least) and unable to respond to many calls for assistance as these departments struggle to categorize emergencies based on severity and a host of other factors that likely depend on the situation.
Even in less extreme cases, think about the last time you called 911 or had to go to the ER following an injury. How long did it take to receive treatment? Were you satisfied with the results of the medical care you paid for? And if you live in a rural area, an emergency medical response could take hours in the best of circumstances. Sprinkle in some bad weather or a regional catastrophe and the reality is that you may not receive the assistance you need in time.
It’s for this reason that understanding at least the basics of both emergency first aid and survival medicine are essential to any survival plan.
