Principles 3 & 4: Water and Food

Water is essential to the survival of all living things on this planet. We need an average of 3-5 litres of water a day and in truly arid areas as much as 10 litres. Quite simply we cannot manage without it for long.

But bad water can be worse than no water at all. Water borne infections can induce vomiting and diarrhoea leading to fluid loss and greater dehydration. Therefore we offer a number of options for the purification of water, including a straw that allows you to drink from sources beyond your reach without risk of contamination.

Please follow all purification instructions carefully and remember that boiling can also remove bacteria when chemicals are unavailable.

Finally we have also included a variety of water carriers allowing you to transport your hard won drinking water.

Food comes after water as we can last longer without food than we can water.

It is possible to manage without food for 30 days but physical performance and abilities, not to mention morale diminish significantly after 7 days.

As with water our environment has a direct influence on our nutritional needs. We need less food in warm dry conditions than in the cold and wet where just keeping warm burns up precious calories.

For food we have Emergency and Survival Rations from both Military and civilian sources. We have also included some items to help with food preparation and cooking.

Finally; it may be better not to eat all if water is short or unavailable as the digestion process will remove fluid from your system. Protein in particular is bad for this, so rethink that camp fire steak...
