Departing from the traditional survival/First Aid manual, the "Don't Die Out There!" deck is a fun and easy way to learn about survival and first aid. And because they're made from water-resistant card stock, these cards are tough enough to pack with you when you head into the outdoors.The information on these cards is taken from survival and First Aid guides written by an outdoorsman and physician, so every time you play a friendly card game with family and friends, you can get an education.
The advice in the deck is well-organized, so you can find what you need to in a hurry. Different categories are arranged by suit, with the Ace of each suit listing the information found on each card. The information by suit is as follows:
Diamonds: survival essentials, signals, locating your position, and shelters
Spades: assessing the situation, water, fire, food, and evacuation techniques
Hearts: basic first aid, hypothermia, frostbite, heat illness, and sprains and dislocations
Clubs: CPR, head and spine injuries, fractures, bites and stings, and evacuating the injured
Not only an easy way to carry essential survival tips, but also a great form of entertainment. And what deck of playing cards would be more appropriate while camping, hiking, fishing, or hunting?

A very good and compact collection of survival, medical and rescue information that you can keep in your backpack, car, earthquake kit and forget about it till needed.
If you find yourself in a survival situation alone or with family, the stress or injury could easily make you forget your survival or camping skills. With these cards, you can calm and refresh your mind. You can even calm others later with a card game.
The cards are well organized and indexed for easy reference. They are coated with some type of plastic but I'd still store them in a waterproof bag.
Although there are some graphics, these cards are mostly text. That's why I gave it 3 Stars and not more. Would like to see more graphics for those with vision issues, language issues, the very young or for beginner outdoor adventures.
