Rules of Survival: Top 5 Tips For Surviving and Succeeding in Any Disaster is a book that I got while doing research for a college writing class. I found it interesting and it was packed with useful information that could be very useful to anyone who is survival minded. It is one of those “survivals” books that I look forward to reading each time I get a chance.
Rules of Survival: Top 5 Tips for Surviving and Succeeding in Any Disaster deals with creating a food and watertight container, your first aid kit, a first aid kit that has some basic tools in it, a knife and tool sets, survival seeds and food bars. You should always have a good supply of these things at all times, even if you only live for a day. In case of a disaster, you would not want to be stuck with nothing but a mattress and blankets and no food. I would suggest starting out with some of these items and then graduate to having a good supply of food and water.
I also suggest getting yourself some type of first aid training, as you would obviously need it in the case of an injury or illness. It is a very good thing to be prepared for whatever comes. As you probably already know, most people are not well prepared for natural disasters because they either do not think about it or they do not take the time to get educated about it. You do not need to be a doctor or a professional in order to make sure that you and your family are safe. All you need to do is make sure that you are prepared to handle the situation as best as you can and then follow the steps of the book.
One of the things that most people forget to do is to have enough water to drink. It is very important to remember that you will have to walk for quite some time. Your body needs to stay hydrated and clean. You may want to invest in a small water filter to make sure that your drinking water is clean and safe.
Another rule of survival is to ensure that you have a strong structure where you can hide and shelter from the weather. You are going to be doing a lot of hiking and camping. When it gets cold or stormy, you will need a place to stay warm and dry. Think about your car and the other vehicles that you may need to get into such as a cabin or a tent. Make sure that you can store the things that you will need in your car or the tents before the trip and leave the larger items at home.
The third rule is to avoid getting lost. If you are traveling on foot, it can be tempting to go off and do some hiking. However, this is one thing that most people should steer clear of. Why is that? Well, if you get lost there is a chance that you may never find your way back to civilization. It would be better to spend some money on a hiking guide or a campfire than to risk your life trying to find your way back on your own.
Also, avoid a lot of shopping during the off season. During this time many things are cheaper than they are at other times of the year. Therefore, you may want to pass on some of these sales to save some money. This also applies to buying food during these sales because you will probably be getting food that is prepackaged and you will be wasting money on buying more things that you will only be eating once and throwing away.
These are just a few of the survival rules that most people should follow. If you follow them you will have a much better chance of surviving a crisis. So if you ever find yourself in a survival situation, try to follow one of these rules of survival. Your odds of surviving are much better than those that do not.
