Every prepper knows that in order to survive a catastrophic event or a perilous situation, you have to have the right gear and equipment. But the truth is that even if you have all of the items checked off on your list of survival gear essentials, your chances of prospering in a post-societal world are still slim unless you possess the required skills and knowledge. Ready Nutrition recently published a list of the 10 most important survival skills you need to have in order to be sufficiently prepared for a potential tragedy. They are as follows:

Outdoor survival courses

In the event of a catastrophic event that causes society to come crashing down like a house of cards, chances are you are going have to spend a significant amount of time outside if you wish to survive. It’s important to educate yourself on outdoor survival by taking advantage of different courses that are available in your city or state, reading books, and conducting online research into the matter.

Another skill that is an absolute necessity has to do with medical training and knowing what to do if you, a friend or a family member becomes sick or wounded. It’s important to educate yourself on cleaning and stitching wounds, treating burns and preventing infection. Online courses are available for basic CPR/first aid, and there may even be a local Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) class for paramedics and first responders being offered near you.

Hunting skills
While it’s important to know how to grow your own food after being thrown into a survival situation (see “gardening” below), it’s also important to know how to hunt, not just so that you can have meat in your diet, but also so that you can make tools and clothing from the bones and the furs of the animals, respectively. Check out the National Hunting Association to develop your hunting skills before hunting literally becomes a matter of life or death.
