Survival Skills in the Bush

This a great opportunity to hear Rick Petersen, former SAS soldier present on survival in the bush.  I went to a presentation recently at the library and all Sunshine Coast library events booked out weeks in advance. 

This is something all bushwalkers, campers, mountain bike riders etc  should learn.

Rick will cover the following and many more - there will also be some practical demonstrations

Water:  Where to find it, filtering and sterilisation techniques 

Shelter:   Creating an emergency shelter if required, natural and man made 

First Aid: Broken leg, snake bites etc

Survival Kit / First Aid Kit - Contents and its practicality

Fire:   The importance and multiple ways in which to achieve fire apart from lighter or matches

Food:   Where it is, as a priority? foraging for edible flora species 

Fears: Learn about the psychology behind controlling fears and emotions in high stress situations. 

Rescue: Finding your way back to civilisation or having rescue find you, and signals that you can use to assist in finding you when lost.  

Where /Time: 

7pm - Headland Buderim Croquet Club, Syd Lingard Drive, Buderim.

Drive past theHeadland Bowls Club and a short distance up the road on the right is the Croquet Club.

Cost:

$2 contribution per person will be collected at the beginning of the meeting to help cover registration on the Meetup website and sundry costs

Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday  9  May.
