One of the most important survival tips I can offer you in any survival situation is to "THINK FIRST"
Usually what happens to a person when they are put into a situation that they rarely find themselves in...is that they panic. When time is of the essence, panic is not an option. So how do we get to the point of being able to not panic when placed in a life or death situation or some kind of survival situation?
The answer is to become knowledgeable about first aid and survival techniques.
These go hand in hand really.In most cases when someone has been placed in a survival situation (other than simply becoming lost) they have gotten to that place because of some event that was usually beyond their control. I am speaking of a car accident or a slip on a rock face or something similar.
In most cases first aid response in necessary as the first choice of priorities.
The best defense is to have a good offense.With that said...(Here is another survival tip)...What if you had been prepared beforehand by taking a first aid class of some sort. Or read a first aid handbook and had a least the basics of what it takes to keep yourself or someone else alive?
If that were true your mind would almost automatically shift into that mode and you would not have time to panic.
You would almost instinctively go straight into the first aid mode and start the necessary checks of yourself or your patient. Checking the airway (breathing) and heart beat (Pulse) to check for proper function.Then you would do a check for consciousness and shock, and do this almost automatically without panic.
No one said that you would not feel fear!
So my last survival tip in this article is:
Get yourself some training or read a good publication on the subject.Knowing survival skills can save your life or empower you to save the lives of others. So do not delay and do something about it...RIGHT NOW!
