During a war, moving to a rural area is a good option to avoid attacks by the enemy army. However, surviving in these areas requires you to learn some essential skills. To help you with this, we want to talk to you about some of the most basic survival skills that can help you during a crisis. Let's get started!
Light a fire, a basic skill to cook and warm yourself
Fire has many functions in a survival situation. It is used to cook food, keep wild animals away, warm you up and boil water. The easiest way to light a fire is to use glasses or the glass of a flashlight to light dry leaves by concentrating sunlight. On the other hand, you need to gather enough wood to keep the fire going for longer.
Get a source of freshwater
Lack of water can kill a person in three days. That is why getting freshwater is one of the essential skills to survive. In rural areas, it is possible to find springs or rivers whose water is drinkable, although it is recommended to boil it and filter it before consuming it. However, if you don't have a natural water source, you should learn how to distill it.
Learn to build traps
If the war goes on for many days, your food supply will likely run out at some point. If this is the case, it is important to learn how to hunt animals using traps. This may seem very primitive, but during an emergency, it can mean the difference between life and death. There are many models of traps that you can build in a survival situation depending on the environment and the fauna around you.
Remember that the key to survival is to think logically about any situation to find the best solution. Save your strength, anticipate the dangers of nature, and do not lose sight of your goal, survive until you can return to your home.
