water proof matches

If your matches get wet, you can rub the bottom of a can with a rock, shine it up and create a mirror that will intensify the sun’s rays and get a pile of leaves hot enough to catch fire. This technique could be especially helpful if you drained your last can of Coke washing down the cheese puffs that that could have helped start the fire.You can buy water proof matches and keep them with you in the woods.

Wound heavy bleeding

Major Wound
Apply direct pressure by clamping your hand on the wound, then elevate the injury above the heart to slow blood flow. If bleeding continues for 30 minutes, use clothes to wrap the site in a pressure dressing. “Don’t keep checking to see if it’s working, even if it’s bloody” says Dr. Jeff Gutterman, a fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. “That’s a classic mistake.” If the bleeding doesn’t stop after another 30 minutes, tie off the wound a few inches above the site. If you get emergency help within several hours you probably won’t lose the limb.
Poisonous Snakes
Every year, 8000 people are bitten by snakes To check if you’ve been bitten by a poisonous snake, look for a pair of deep puncture marks. Swelling will be quick, so remove constricting items such as jewelry. Now, try to stay calm and keep the bite below heart level as you head to the nearest hospital. What about slicing the bite and sucking out the venom? It doesn’t work, and you might slice into something that can’t be easily repaired
