When it comes to survival skills, making fire is one of the most important.
Fire gives us the ability to:
- Keep warm and dry,
- Cook food and sterilize water
- Make signals during the day and at night
Humans also show a psychological boost from fires. This moral booster can help to increase your odds of surviving an emergency.
With all these benefits, it’s easy to see why we spend a lot of time (and money) to ensure we can always make a fire.
