Living Prepared is about Minimal Preparations of Food, Water, Shelter and Protection you need to survive a disaster aftermath on your own for at least a month and probably much longer, maybe a year. The methods within I have tested and use for my own survival. Hopefully they will give you some guidance with your decisions on how to prepare yourself and family.

Fire Steel, Light My Fire (Ferro-Rod)
If you're a Prepper will this be your ultimate fire starter? I think so. It doesn't matter how cold, what altitude or how wet it is outside, the fire steel will create the sparks necessary to get a fire going, light ALL your propane devices (stove, catalytic heater and lanterns), oil lamp or other fueled devices that you may be depending on while in the woods or during an emergency. The Fire Steel is far more dependable than any matches or lighters.
About the whistle included, I have to say the whistle is just about worthless, this one is barely audible! Buy and carry a real survival whistle.
At $17.20 it's affordable and worth having in your BOB or in your emergency stocks!
