“How-To” Survive in the Desert: A 2 Day Workshop

Categorized as: Nature & Outdoors
Event tags:


Desert emergencies can happen at any time. In every case, there were certain actions one took leading up to the emergency. In this class, you will learn how to recognize and mitigate those actions which can lead to emergencies in the desert. You will learn simple steps to take at home – before you leave – which can reduce risks while venturing in the outdoors. This class will help you identify, avoid, and treat common emergencies: hypothermia, hyperthermia, burns, lacerations, dehydration, animal encounters, and others. You will also learn how to take a common sense approach to putting together a simple kit for your back country travels as well as how to effectively use those items.
