Being prepared for any kind of a disaster is important. What about a survival situation with your health? Most people know that chest pain or angina and numbness in the left arm are the classic signs of a heart attack.

For instance, if you have a flint fire starter but “can’t use it to save your life,” then most likely you won’t be able to use it to actually save your life.
