Whether one is planning for an afternoon or multi-day adventure or is the victim of an in-town disaster, wilderness first aid and prolonged care skills are extremely useful and may indeed save lives.
We also offer a variety of survival programs that foster a “staying safe, but know what to do if disaster strikes”, mind- and skill-set.
Set in a nearby park or some of the nation’s most interesting backcountry, our one-half to four-day programs provide an excellent opportunity to learn, hone, or self-evaluate one’s practical navigational skills and insights.
Our one-day program focuses upon those skills and insights that one should have regarding: attitude and overall approach; shelter; fire building; rest; signaling; rest; water; and food. Approximately half the day is spent in the field actually practicing these elements. Also covered is: gear selection; how to best avoid problems; and what sort of rescue response you might expect, should disaster strike.Our two-day program includes all of our one-day program elements plus expands your comfort zone by offering a night out in a survival shelter and “field cooking.” The course also includes additional tips and techniques as well as advice on how to assume a leadership role and help others in a survival situation.
