The Survive Outside program helps to augment your audience’s basic outdoor survival knowledge. This course provides you with different scenarios, acitivities, presentation tips, as well as the core Survive Outside content that you will need to know in order to properly educate your audience.
Introducing the Presentation
Learn the proper formats, scripts, and procedures that must be followed when introducing both yourself, and the program. Make sure to include a hook and rationale, and background information on Search and Rescue in Canada.
The Three Ts – Trip Planning, Training, and Taking the Essentials are the three key steps to outdoor safety. By following these three easy steps, AdventureSmart believes that outdoor recreationalists will significantly improve their chances of survival should they become lost or in distress.
Making the Right Call
Alerting SAR authorities is not always as simple as typing 911 into your cellphone. There are a variety of different technologies that are typically used to call or alert for help, from transceivers to beacons and radios – and it is your job to educate your audience on which option is best suited to their adventure.
Scenarios and Concluding
Learn how to properly conclude your presentation, and help your audience summarize all that they have learned. Put all the learning together and analyze real-life stories of SAR subjects with your audience. Discuss what was done well, and what could have been done differently.
