    5 Basic Survival Skills Suriving in the Outdoors

    of the most important elements to survival is between your ears, your
    brain. DO NOT PANIC, use your wits and practice all elements of the 5
    Basics before you may need to rely on them.

    FIRE can purify
    water, cook food, signal rescuers, provide warmth, light and comfort,
    help keep predators at a distance, and can be a most welcome friend and
    companion. Each and every person who ventures into the Outdoors should
    have a minimum of two ways to start a fire with them, one on their
    person at all times and the other with their gear. A few small fires
    provides more heat than one large fire. Collect firewood you think you
    will need for the night and then collect the same amount again,
    experience shows you will need it. Conserve fuel by making a "star fire"
    where the ends of large logs meet in the fire only, push inward as more
    fuel is needed. Make a reflector from your SPACE BLANKET on the back
    wall of a shelter to reflect heat of your survival fire to your back,
    sit between fire and back shelter wall.

    SHELTER is the
    means by which you protect your body from excess exposure from the sun,
    cold, wind, rain or snow. Anything that takes away or adds to your
    overall body temperature can be your enemy. Clothing is the first line
    of shelter protection, have the right clothes for the right environment.
    Always have a hat. Try and keep the layer closest to your body dry.
    Layers trap air and are warmer than one thick garment. Do not expend
    energy making a shelter if nature provides one. Practice building a
    quick lean-to shelter in case you can not find your campsite, do not
    wait until you need to make one. Use a SPACE BLANKET to prevent dampness
    or to insulate your shelter or to wrap yourself up in a sitting or
    squat position to concentrate your body core heat.

    is having available the means and ability to alert any and all
    potential rescuers that you are in need of HELP. Fire, flashing light,
    bright color markers, flags, mirrors, whistles all will help you be
    found. Three fires in a triangular form are a recognized distress
    signal. Carefully bank your signal fires to prevent igniting surrounding
    area. Use regular signal mirrors only when you can see a plane, or
    people in the distance. Use EMERGENCY STROBE light at night to help
    attract attention from those that may be in the area. Make smoky fire
    with organic material over the fire during the day to attract attention.
    Lay out ground to air signal in open field, S.O.S. from rocks, logs or
    colored clothing, whatever will be seen against the background. Most
    search and rescue parties use aircraft as a primary method of sighting.

    are vital towards your survival. Ration your sweat not your water
    intake. Try to drink only in the cool of the evening. You can live up to
    three days without water. DO NOT eat plants you do not know. Never
    drink urine. Always assume that you will need extra food and water when
    you plan your trip. Pack energy bars and candy in your pockets at all
    times, just in case. If possible boil all water 10 minutes plus one
    minute for every 1000 feet above sea level. Strain water through your
    handkerchief to remove large particles. Try to drink only in the cool of
    the evening. Never wait until you are without water to collect it. Have
    some poly zip bags to collect and store water. Never eat any wild
    berries that you are not sure of what they are. You can catch rainwater
    in your SPACE BLANKET by laying it out in a trench.

    is not just the basic medical needs, it is the primary way in which you
    act to survive. DO NOT PANIC, remain calm and do what you have to do to
    take care of YOU. STOP means Sit, Think, Observe, and Plan. It is the
    most intelligent thing you can do when you realize you are lost or
    stranded. The most important element is to keep your brain functioning
    rationally, this is basic first aid for survival. Analyze your needs
    before every trip, create a medical checklist and carry a small personal
    kit with you at all times. Most survival situations require only
    dressing for small cuts, bruises and personal medication needs, make
    sure you know what you have with you and how to use it. Do not over
    pack, pack what you feel you will need to carry with you at all times.
    Concentrate on being found, pack a picture of your family in with your
    gear to remind you of the reasons to remain calm and to survive. Prevent
    hypothermia by insulating yourself in a SPACE BLANKET.

    Squad, frequently abbreviated to ZS, is a community service and
    disaster preparedness organization that uses the metaphor of a "Zombie
    Apocalypse" or "Zombocalypse", as ZS calls it, for any natural or
    man-made disaster (hurricane, terrorism, earthquake, etc.). Horror fans
    who combined their shared interests of zombies and experience with
    disaster preparedness. It describes itself as an "elite zombie
    suppression task force ready to defend your neighborhood from the
    shambling hordes of the walking dead." Due to this and other
    tongue-in-cheek references to popular culture zombie movies and video
    games which are frequently military in nature, the organization is often
    mistaken for a semi-militant or satirical paramilitary organization

    How to build an outdoor survival shelter

    most survival situations, shelter should be your first concern. Shelter
    not only provides the necessary protection from heat, cold, wind or
    rain, but also serves as a base of operations and provides a boost to
    morale against the deteriorating affects of noises in the night.
