The simple idea is that most of the so-called modern conveniences that cost a fortune to buy, use, and maintain can be made from things that you have and are not using to the full extent possible.

One of the most priceless treasures that you cannot buy is the safety and security of your family and loved ones. You can spend a fortune on security systems and monitors and slowly but surely realize that you are no more safe than you would have been if you did not buy these must have pieces of equipment that you really do not need.

The problems of safety and security become more important for those who live in the “wild” or for the homesteader who depends on the forest to supply food and fuel. Even the most experienced person can become disoriented or become the victim of a temporarily disabling injury that demands immediate help.

What You Will Need:

-*  Metal can (soup can)

-* Large nail (small screwdriver or rounded tool)

-* Medium sized rock (for hammering)

-* Flat hard surface (rock or concrete)

The majority of the world depends on a cell phone or a smartphone to provide emergency help. The problem is that the phones do not always work. The cost of a phone and a plan is outrageous and is just a sold necessity that you really do not need.

Clever and independent homesteaders have created a means of alerting others in a time of distress that costs nothing, is 100 percent reliable, weighs less than an ounce, and is absolutely guaranteed not to ever fail. You have the makings – a metal soup can.

Below is step by step instructions about fashioning a survival device from a soup can lid.
