Survival Tip #8: Learn first aid skills.
This survival tip can mean the difference between life and death. It’s important to have a first aid kit – in fact that’s one of the first preps that beginners should concentrate on. If you or your loved one are hurt during an emergency, you must be able to care for that injury before anything else.
Live first, then survive!
Invest in a first aid kit that can cover most injuries you could potentially face, including cuts, burns, broken bones, and other traumatic injuries. Be sure that it also contains medications such as pain relievers, antihistamines, burn cream, etc.
Of course, if you don’t know how to use the supplies, they don’t do much good. Take classes to learn basic first aid so you’re ready in an emergency.
