Now, imagine if you could also use your paracord as fire tinder...enter 550 FireCord, the fire preparedness solution that will ensure you are Always Prepared! 

Fire is paramount to survival and being able to create fire is crucial. People have a tendency to overestimate their ability to create fire under adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, cold, windy locations or darkness. Humidity, time of year, and altitude are also conditions to consider as well. Likewise, material selection is a key prerequisite to successfully building a sustainable fire. Even then there is no guarantee it can be accomplished in a survival situation.

 

The most vital component of fire is its  ability to provide heat to dry wet clothes and to regulate the body s core temperature as maintaining body temperature is vital for survival. The most common cause of death in the wild is hypothermia. Even in desert scenarios, freezing night temperatures have been known to claim lives.

Aside from the above mentioned physical aspect, fire can offer mental comfort as the light and smoke can be used for signaling rescue and it can be used as a predator and insect deterrent.

 

Fire will also contribute greatly to food and water preparation. The heat will kill the majority of parasites and bacteria when cooking game, fish, insects and wild edibles. The smoke will dry and preserve food for later. Having a hot meal can also boost the mental state giving you a psychological edge. 

 

550 FireCord is also WATERPROOF!

*Simply deploy your 550 FireCord to meet all of your parachute cord needs.  When you need the fire tinder, remove the inner red strand, rough it up, ignite it just like any fire tinder and build your fire. 

 

After the inner strand is used, the outer shell can be reused like before, for lanyards, keychains, zipper pulls, or emergency lashing.
