This month two KISAR members provided personal survival training to 5th graders from a local elementary school.
A KISAR member discusses equipment that can make wilderness survival easier.
Concepts covered included; survival mindset, equipment, shelter and fire building. The students were diligent listeners and much fun was had by the students and teachers alike. The material was a combination of NASAR’s “Hug a Tree” program and personal experience.

This activity is a form of preventative search and rescue (PSAR) and directly relates to our mission to, ” provide informational and educational programs and demonstrations to institutions, agencies and community organizations.”
Any other local organizations are encouraged to contact KISAR to see how we can help your members be more safe while recreating in the backcountry.
