Learn the basics of survival on this fast-paced 4-hour course. Based on Jebel Jais this course will leave you tired but exhilarated. Even in such a short time you can get an understanding of the skills Bear uses to survive the wild.
In any survival situation, you need to determine your priorities, then act calmly and methodically. Bear uses this memory aid: “Please Remember What”s First”
P for Protection: Be aware of animal or human predators, extreme weather and other threats.
R for Rescue: When lost, devise a plan for getting help, whether by setting a signal fire, leaving signs on the ground, or writing “SOS” where it can be seen from the sky.
W for Water: Locating water within 24 hours is essential, since your survival without it is limited to about three days.
F for Fire and Food: Building a fire provides warmth, protection and a way to cook food and boil water. While you can survive three weeks without eating, you’ll have a much better chance of self-rescue with protein and energy.
