Is This The Best Prepper Fire Starting Video?


A Prepper Fire Starting Video You Must Watch!


In the Preparedness Community, we run the risk of thinking everyone has the basic skills that many references in survival situations.  For example, we always talk about building a fire.  And for many people, building a fire isn’t that difficult.  That is usually because someone helped teach that person.  It might have been Boy Scouts, a friend on a camping trip, a parent or someone else that was willing to teach the skill of learning how to build a fire.  But could a prepper fire starting video work?

For those who don’t have anyone to help walk them through how to build a fire, videos can help.  The person wanting to learn could then go their backyard and practice building a fire in a firepit.  There are many videos on Youtube,  But recently, I watched a video on Amazon Prime that I thought was really good.

Specialist Ret., was very thorough, some may think to thorough.  However, he used a technique that I wasn’t familiar with.  His technique included a lift that the fire maker would create.  This lift allows air to get to the flames easily.  This allows the fire maker to not have to get on the ground and blow into the fire to provide more air.

The video is titled – Universal Survival Innovations Presents: A.S.I.S.T. Basic Fire Craft
