These days it’s common to hear about a person, or a group of people, who have had to be rescued in a natural setting or who have overcome a survival situation. In general, most people venture out into situations they are not prepared for because they think it can’t happen to them.
“Emergency situations happen all of the time,” says outdoor enthusiast and author Bryan Lynch. “We put our seat belts on every time we enter a car not because we want to get into an accident, but just in case. Why not take that same approach to other emergency situations?”
Be prepared and confident in any survival situation with Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Camping & Outdoor Survival Guide!
