This Wilderness & Bear Awareness course is designed to give field workers in remote and wilderness habitats the knowledge they need to feel secure any time they venture into remote areas away from civilization. This course, developed by Safety Health Publishing Inc., emphasizes a stop, think, observe, and plan approach to wilderness survival. Being prepared for the unexpected is the only way to react quickly in an emergency situation. This safety course teaches you how survive exposure to the elements, medical emergencies, and how to get help when stranded.
The Bear Awareness segment of the course has been designed to provide a broad understanding of bear safety, using bear defense equipment and how to stay safe in the event of an encounter in bear country. The course also covers how to deal with different types of predators, such as mountain lions and wolves.
All in all, some time well spent.
