The Five Key Elements Of Survival & Life

  1. 1. The Five Key Elements of Survival & Life Food Fire Water Shelter First Aid
  2. 2. Water On average, we can live three days without water, versus three weeks without food.
  3. 3. Water Over 3/4ers of our body is composed of fluid. Just by passive existing we lose almost a half gallon per day. That goes up drastically if we are active. Thus we need at least one gallon of water per day.
  4. 4. Water The quickest and most effective emergency preparation we can do is stock water. Have a minimum one case of 500ml bottles per person (three days worth). I recommended it be 2 cases. Do it now!
  5. 5. Food We can survive three weeks without food. But it isn’t fun.
  6. 6. Food Store enough food for one month for every person in the household. Click on image
  7. 7. I have a variety of ration bars (click on each for link): ER Bar Grizzly Bear Emergency Food Rations DaTrex 3600 Below are some before going into a ziplock bag and into my Jeep. FOOD
  8. 8. Fire In our normal civilized world, fire is almost considered a luxury for those who might have a fireplace in their house, but you have to realize that fire actually affects a lot of your day-to-day life.
  9. 9. Fire We rely on fire for heat, for cooking, for signaling. The ability to make fire is one of the essentials of human survival. The ability to put out a fire is of more immediate importance in our homes and work.
  10. 10. Shelter We can survive for three hours in extreme weather without shelter or fire before our body temperature becomes unregulated.
  11. 11. First Aid The Essential Triage of First Aid 1.Breathing 2.Bleeding 3.Broken
  12. 12. First Aid A basic emergency first aid kit is one of the essentials of home preparation.
  13. 13. The Five Essential Elements of Survival If disaster struck, whom would you want at your side, helping you? A doctor? Lawyer? Policeman? Teacher? While they all have unique skills, I submit that the overwhelming choice would be a Special Forces Green Beret.
  14. 14. The Five Essential Elements of Survival This was just a brief over-view. All five areas are covered in depth in Prepare Now, Survive Later. Also covered are ways to prepare for all five along with checklists.

  16. 16. The book on the left is how you prepare NOW. The book on the right, is your guide to surviving an emergency or catastrophe given you’ve prepared. The handbook in the center is a discounted, distilled version of both books with the most important basics - click on cover for any. Print Book
  17. 17. I highly recommend getting at least one print copy of the survival manual. During an emergency you can’t count on an eBook. It’s pocket-sized— shown next to my trusty, old Ranger Handbook. I keep one in the glove compartment of each car, in every Grab-n-Go bag and also give them as gifts— the gift of life. Click on image for print version Print Book
