REI presents, "Winter Outdoor Emergency Preparedness"

  • Caboose Commons 2918 Eskridge Road Fairfax, VA, 22031 United States (map)

We are patterning with REI to bring fun education classes to Caboose Commons! Our first class is, "Winter Outdoor Emergency Preparedness."

Every time you step into the backcountry, whether you're hiking, snowshoeing, or ski touring, be prepared to help yourself and others in the event of an accident or emergency. This class will give you some basic tips on minimizing your chances of being in a survival situation and how to respond if you are. We will discuss planning ahead, dressing in layers, and what you might want to bring (beyond the ten essentials). You will be able to enjoy a winter outing more confidently knowing that you are well prepared to help yourself and your group face a variety of situations.

The class is free, but you must sign up ahead of time, here.
