Getting lost or having an accident in the wild and finding yourself in a survival situation is an experience nobody wants to have to go through, but being prepared for the unexpected can be the difference between life and death. Here are 5 useful tips you can use in case of facing an emergency situation:

Always Stay Calm

The first thing you need to do on a survival situation is to stay calm at all times. Avoiding panic will help you make better decisions and analyze the situation with much more clarity. If you can stay calm and take a logical approach at unexpected situations, you’ll have better and faster chances of getting out of it.

 

Study And Analyze The Surroundings

Getting to know the surroundings and finding a safe place for building an improvised campground is very important. Also, look carefully for potential dangers near the campground and get rid of them.

Cowboy Cooking

Find A Clean Water Source

One of the most important things in a survival situation is to find water. In average, a human being can live without water for 48 hours only, which is why it is important to maintain yourself hydrated as much as you can.

Look For Food

Finding food is very important to obtain energy, and animals are a great source of protein. If you find yourself in a survival situation, always look for places where you can find animals that you can catch and eat, such as rivers or lakes for example.

 

Create A Fire

Nights in the wild can get cold, so keeping warm is also very important. By creating a fire you can stay warm and dry at night, and also cook any animals you have managed to catch for eating purposes.
