Drowning rates in the North have been and continue to be alarmingly high when compared to the rest of the country. This is largely due to a lack of understanding of the hazards of cold water and failure to take the appropriate measures to protect oneself. This one-day package is ideal awareness training for all northerners. Topics include the effects of cold water on the human body, basic rescue and first aid techniques, pre-trip planning, options for safety equipment, and basic emergency response principles. This content is delivered through informative presentations, discussion of northern case studies, and the sharing of
participants’ personal experiences.
