Course Outline

Water is essential to your survival.

  • Everyone needs two to four quarts of water daily.
  • You can last only a few days without water.
  • Clear water does not mean pure water. Mountain streams are often contaminated by parasites.

  • If boiling is impossible, use a chemical purifier or filter.
  • Try to avoid complicating survival problems. Never drink unsafe water.
