[caption id="attachment_2437" align="alignnone" width="3264"]IMG_1778 TAB: Survival[/caption]

A prerequisite to earn the Survival Tab is you must have taken a CAG sanctioned class for the Austere Medicine tab. It isn't feasible to learn survival without basic first aid skills.

2 Video requirements

First 2 minute video will be of your primitive camp with:

  • A primitive shelter, nothing store bought may be used in the construction of the shelter.
  • A cooking station (NOT just a fire), we will leave the definition of cook station up to you (Be creative).
  • At least one hand made tool, that consists of a minimum of 2 parts and demonstrate its use (Hatchet, hammer, or a trap).
The second 2 minute video will be of you starting a fire:
  • You must start it without matches OR a lighter and no accelerants (like lighter fluid or fire starters of any kind).
  • There must be at least 30 seconds of sustained flame, with no addition of fuel.

Requirements for video submissions can found on the bottom of this page...
