4×4 Survival Training

Survival is the ability to stay alive in a life threatening survival situation As humans we need to learn a few skills to stay alive. I call it the big 6 of survival : SHELTER, FIRE, WATER, FOOD, RESCUE and FIRST AID.The first 4 is taught as the 4 needs for survival but I believe that you also need rescue and first aid skills to make it out alive. It makes no sense being able to make fire, build a shelter, find food and water but you have no means to signal for help or to treat injuries and wounds that can easily make your survival situation worse.
