You may have already heard the terms Urban Survival tactics or Wilderness Survival tactics.
As you can imagine, the two are very different in location and issues that will arise – but the both still require the same basic survival tactics.
In a survival situation, we all need the same basic things:
- Fire or heat source (to keep warm, boil water, signal for help, etc)
- A way to signal for help
- First Aid
If you are in an Urban survival situation because of an unexpected disaster, chances are you have access to the majority of your needs, even during an emergency.
Wilderness survival situations happen every year unexpectedly to people who definitely didn’t expect to find themselves lost or stranded in such a scary situation.
In the following video we found, Tony talks about the day hiker. The person who innocently takes a walk, gets hurt or wanders off a trail, ill-prepared for a survival situation. Learning to take the simplest steps can make a huge difference to your overall outcome if you find yourself in a bad situation.
If you’re headed away from your home for a day or weekend outdoors, take the time to put together a portable survival kit.
The key to survival tactics is PREPAREDNESS. Being prepared means having your survival gear with you. Keep a kit in your vehicle, something you can toss in your backpack or grab and carry.
