What Are The Five Key Elements Of Survival & Life

  1. The Five Key Elements of Survival Food Fire Water Shelter First Aid
  2. Water On average, we can live three days without water, versus three weeks without food.
  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. 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. Food We can survive three weeks without food. But it isn’t fun.
  6. Food Store enough food for one month for every person in the household.
  7. I have a variety of ration bars: ER Bar Grizzly Bear Emergency Food Rations DaTrex 3600 Below are some before going into a ziplock bag and into my Jeep. FOOD
  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. 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. Shelter We can survive for three hours in extreme weather without shelter or fire before our body temperature becomes unregulated.
