7 Ways To Light A Fire Without A Match

In general I prefer to make my own survival kit as opposed to buying a pre-made kit. Check this site out though, you may find some helpful tips.

Survival Tip #1
if you are in a survival situation and you only have one paper match to start a fire, you only have one chance to get that fire started. Fire is necessary to keep dry/warm, ward off predators, cook, and disinfect water. Paper matches burn quickly. If you happen to have chapstick on you and are wearing wool socks (or a wool shirt), you can create a longer burning “match” and potentially start a fire. Chapstick is petroleum based; which means it can be used to fuel a flame or will catch fire easily. Take lint from your wool socks or fray whatever kind of wool you have. Then use a fair amount of chapstick and coat the wool fibers; making it like a candle wick. Next, use the chapstick cap as a base for your “candle” and put a dab of chapstick inside the cap along with the “wick” you just made. Now you are ready to light your match (given that you’ve prepared a fire). Strike the match and light your new “candle”. This will give you an extra minute to get a fire started, when those extra few seconds mean getting a fire started, and a papermatch just won’t cut it because a matter of seconds can mean a better chance of survival.
