Learn how and why emergency situations develop and what to do about them! The session will provide participants with both the knowledge and skills to allow them to better prepare and manage incidents that may arise in the back country. The session will be hands on and focus on emergency shelter building, fire starting skills, signalling methods, navigation techniques, water purification, and food and clothing options. We will take a look at items you should carry with you into the back country “just in case”! All participants will receive a personal emergency kit as part of the session.
