Fire is paramount to survival and being able to create fire is crucial. People have a tendency to overestimate their ability to create fire under adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, cold, windy locations or darkness. Humidity, time of year, and altitude are also conditions to consider as well. Likewise, material selection is a key prerequisite to successfully building a sustainable fire. Even then there is no guarantee it can be accomplished in a survival situation.
The most vital component of fire is its ability to provide heat to dry wet clothes and to regulate the body’s core temperature as maintaining body temperature is vital for survival. The most common cause of death in the wild is hypothermia. Even in desert scenarios, freezing night temperatures have been known to claim lives.
Aside from the above mentioned physical aspect, fire can offer mental comfort as the light and smoke can be used for signaling rescue and it can be used as a predator and insect deterrent.
Fire will also contribute greatly to food and water preparation. The heat will kill the majority of parasites and bacteria when cooking game, fish, insects and wild edibles. The smoke will dry and preserve food for later. Having a hot meal can also boost the mental state giving you a psychological edge.
550 FireCord is also waterproof!
Simply deploy your 550 FireCord to meet all of your parachute cord needs. When you need the fire tinder, remove the inner strands, light just like any fire tinder and build your fire. After the inner strands are used, the outer shell can be reused like before, for lanyards, keychains, zipper pulls, or emergency lashing.
What is Live Fire?
Live Fire is smaller, lighter, burns hotter and burns longer than other leading emergency fire starting products.
Live Fire is meant for all weather conditions and takes a spark easily from ferrocerium rod, lighter or match. The entire contents are 100% waterproof and will even light after being submerged in water for long periods of time.
Each unit burns in average of 30 minutes. Because the lid slides open and closed, it allows you to control the needed flame size. This also allows you to conserve resources as well as increase burn times.
With its slide top lid, Live Fire can also function as a candle when needed. The heat this product creates is extremely hot, which allows it to easily dry out and ignite wet wood or tough to light tinder.
When flashing parts of the tin container, Live Fire becomes a signaling device. By using the products functionality to create fire, you can also create smoke signals for rescue.
Because of the sleek and compact design, Live Fire fits easily into your pocket, purse, glove box, tackle box or backpack and can be easily added to your emergency readiness kit or bug out bag.
Live Fire is also useful in the home for those tough to light fireplaces, barbecues, smokers, wood burning stoves, burn piles and backyard fire pits.
Whether you're at home, in the backyard, hiking, camping, backpacking, fishing, rafting, canoeing, skiing, trekking, mountain biking, rock climbing, traveling or just out for a picnic, Live Fire should be in your pocket, pack or purse!
