Fire Starter

A good emergency fire starter is a must for any disaster preparedness kit.  Whether you are in a wilderness or urban environment a survival fire is essential for heat, cooking, and sometimes light.  While starting a fire is possible with nothing more than wood and friction, it is much easier if you have a good Magnesium rod and striker, windproof lighter, or weather proof matches available. 

Which is the best fires starter?  It depends on your situation and preference.  A fire striker is only good if you have dry tinder or fuel available.  Lighters will light anything as long as they don't run out of fluid.  Weather proof matches are a great solution if they work properly.
