Survival skills are general skills that an individual can employ in order to survive in any kind of hostile environment or natural setting. These skills are intended to give basic needs for human survival which comprise shelter, food, and water. A number of these skills have been around for ages and are a fundamental part of our way of life. Some survival skills have developed over the years, and some have been developed more recently, but no one has ever thought to include them in a comprehensive guide for survival skills. In this article I want to offer you a very broad view of some of the essential survival skills that are intended to help you to survive in different situations.
The first skill that we will discuss is fire. You need to have the right kind of tools in order to build, store, and utilize a fire in your backyard. You should have some kind of lighter fluid and matches to light your fire as well as a means to reach it. Another necessity for your backyard fire is a whistle or bell that can be used to alert people in case there is a fire. This is a particularly important skill to have in case of an emergency.
One of the most important survival skills for your backyard is how to hunt small game in the wilderness. The main reason for this is that most of the food you will find in the wild will be very small game. The main game you will likely find will be rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, and other small game. If you have a gun then this is going to be a piece of cake, but if you don’t then a knife will do and it is always good to have some sort of small game knife as well.
Another thing that you should have in your possession is a set of basic survival skills for water and heat. These include having an outdoor sink, a large enough pot that you can boil water in, a small can opener, a compass, a flashlight, a fire starter, a mirror, a signaling device such as a white radio or a pink bb. Other tools that are also important to have when you are in the wilderness are a can opener, a compass, fire wood, a compass, and a signaling device. It is also wise to keep a hand radio with you because in many situations you will receive emergency messages on your walkie talkie.
Another skill that you need to have for your backyard is CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation). A lot of people underestimate the power of this tip and they don’t really use it in their backyards. When you are outside and see somebody getting CPR by someone else then immediately turn around and try to help them out by either holding them or by calling out to them. This is a very useful tip to have in your kit. Remember to remove your clothes and put them in a plastic trash bag so you won’t have anything on your person that could make you look suspicious.
One other very important survival technique for your backyard is CPR. Even though it seems like it is more of a common sense survival skills you really need to learn it because in some situations you may not have much time to wait for emergency responders to arrive. You can learn CPR by watching a video or by doing hands on techniques. Remember these basic survival skills for your backyard and stay safe.
