What Not to Do After a Survival Incident (And Why Not)

Most survival advice is based on what you should do.

You should build and maintain a stockpile of food. You should have a bug-out bag for emergencies and a survival cache for longer-term survival scenarios. You should constantly review your list of survival “must-haves” and keep it updated.

And so on.

What is not usually offered in survival advice is stuff you should not do.

Yet, in many ways, knowing what not to do in certain settings can be a more valuable asset than what you choose to do.

Understanding the pitfalls of a survival scenario and how to avoid them allows you to navigate the chaos in the situation's aftermath.

It also gives you an idea of the parameters of the situation you are in, which lets you make informed decisions.
