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.
- The best way to purify water is by boiling it for five minutes.
- If boiling is impossible, use a chemical purifier or filter.
- Try to avoid complicating survival problems. Never drink unsafe water.
