Emergency Fire Starter Pyrotechnic Formula

Put about an ounce of this fire starter mixture underneath a pile of twigs and branches and put a few drops of glycerin on top of it. Stand back and in about 40 seconds the fire starter will burst into flames and set the twigs and branches on fire. Carry this fire starter composition in a Ziploc bag with a first aid kit. Parts by weight, keep dry and separate from glycerin.
