If you find yourself in a survival scenario there are three things that you need to concern yourself with immediately. This scenario could be the realization that you are lost in the woods, it could be an urban survival situation or even recovery from a serious natural disaster. The beauty of survival is that these three issues need to be your priority.

The only thing that would supersede these three is immediate safety. If your live was at risk based on the people, creatures or environment in your immediate area you would, of course, deal with that first.
Now, having a decent base of woodsman and bush craft skills can make survival a lot easier but having the right can simplify these tasks exponentially.
