Knowing how to start a fire is one of the most critical elements to surviving an emergency or wilderness survival situation. Hopefully you’re carrying some kind of fire starting gear in your EDC or your go bag but if not, there are many ways to start a fire.

You should learn as many fire-making methods as possible because you never know what situation you’ll be in where you need to make one. I have MANY ways to start a fire in my personal bug out bag because I think it’s so important – and my pack’s still only 25 pounds.

This goes for a lot of survival skills but fire gives you heat, cooking, craft-making ability, water purification, light, and protection. Also, practice these for yourself so you know exactly how they work and not just think remembering a concept will always work.

Here are some unique and creative ways to start a fire without a lighter or permanent survival match.
