Lecture/open discussion about Personal Safety Triangle and Survival Pattern

If you are able to assist yourself in an emergency, only then will you be able to assist others in an emergency.
Self-rescue would be my preferred course of action, quickest and probably my most dependable option for most emergency situations whether urban or wilderness based.

“Personal Safety Triangle”
I’ll be break down the three pillars: First Aid, Navigation and Survival.
Who, what, where, when, why, knowledge, skills, equipment, examples from my past and open discussion.

“Survival Pattern”
I’ll be break down the survival pattern: First Aid, Fire, Shelters, Signals, Water and Food.
Who, what, where, when, why, training, skills, equipment, examples from my past, and scenario based discussions.
How and where I use the survival pattern in both my personal and work life. i.e. hazard evaluation, equipment evaluation, training evaluation, shelter site selection, student evaluations, pre-trip planning, emergency planning, clothing evaluation, trip preparations, and much more.

Last but not least!
A breakdown of my emergency bag (bugout bag/get home bag/72hr bag/Search and Rescue bag, it’s all the same gear) and an open discussion.
