LATEST - SAFE SURVIVAL BOOK -Under construction
A book and CD-ROM based on the content of this site and much more, is now under construction. Please link to SOS Book and CD for further information

Safe Survival magazine latest update


You can die in as little as three minutes without air. Think.

You can die in as little as three hours from loss of body heat. Shelter, starting with your clothes and working outward should be given highest priority.

You can die in as little as three days without water. Carry it. Know how to find it. Know how to make it as safe as possible to drink.

You can die in as little as three weeks without food. But most people in fact, can live much longer without eating. Pack a little extra food, but keep the more critical factors foremost in mind.


A sheet of light plastic approximately 10 feet square for shelter

An emergency space blanket

About 50 feet of light nylon cord for shelter construction

A roll of cold weather tape. Tape will hold the plastic and space blanket (shiny side toward you) together and secure both to the cord to create a low lean-to. Face the lean-to away from wind. (With a fire out front, a lean-to lined with space blankets becomes a toaster oven, and you are the toast.)

Waterproof/windproof matches

Firestarter or if nothing else, carry a candle

A whistle or signal mirror or both

A small emergency flashlight

A metal cup that can be used to heat water or melt snow

Some high-energy, long-lasting food

Emergency communication mail/broadcast system operating soon..keep an eye out...!!
