Will be visiting our outdoor ed. 8/9 classroom June 3rd. The presentation will cover the following:
– Short video on SAR in BC
– How SAR works in BC
– How SAR works in Fernie
– Typical responses SAR deals with, and how to avoid the dangers initially, and how to help the response if you are involved.
– They will try and cover typical hazards around here for young people: snow, rivers and lakes, hiking, wild animals, wilderness travel.
– They will also talk about additional issues we have dealt with over the years with this age group (illicit trips and bush drives, alcohol, drugs)
– How technology can help
– And provide a few safety handouts (whistles, survival blankets)
