    – Remember that your frame of mind is important so stay calm, don’t panic. Use your ingenuity. But don’t take chances.

  • –  Your first need is either shelter or water. Find and build shelter. Try to purify all your water if you can.
  • –  Your next need is fire and to do things to help you get found. Build a safe fire and signal for help.
