Survival Training: 24 Easy to Learn Methods for Learning How to Start a Fire, Create Firestarters and Make Waterproof Matches

Survival Training: 24 Easy to Learn Methods for Learning How to Start a Fire, Create Firestarters and Make Waterproof Matches was a free book for the kindle or the free kindle reading app when this post was written.

Can you start a fire without matches?

In survival situations being able to build a fire is one of the skills that can mean the difference between life and death. It is something that can be learned as practice makes perfect. With some patience, making a fire can become a technique that you can readily add to your arsenal with or without the use of matches.

Will you keep your head and follow directions?

Of course this does mean getting your hands dirty and quite possibly burned at times too. Above all though, the real keys are attention to detail, a great deal of patience and being aware of your surroundings.

Without a doubt, fire is one of the 3 most necessary elements in survival situations along with shelter and water. It provides a number of things both physical and mental including: warmth, heat to dry clothes, a way to purify water, a method to cook food, smoke to signal a rescue party, a means to melt snow for drinking water, comfort and security, a way to repel wide animals and light to see or light a torch.
