Usually when I do posts about topics related to SHTF (shit hits the fan), I get several messages about paranoid preppers and government conspiracies etc. The things is the SHTF can mean different things to different people. The term isn’t reserved just for end-of-the-world scenarios that may or may not happen. For example – if I am out hiking miles from safety and I get bitten by a snake, in my book the shit has hit the fan at that moment!
With regards this post about wound closures, it really doesn’t matter what your interpretation of SHTF is. The bottom line is there is some excellent first aid advice on what to do with open wounds, if medical treatment is not an immediate option. It’s highly recommended for anyone who spends time outdoors hunting, fishing, hiking etc, and those into emergency preparedness.
