Hug-a-Tree Program Presentation

12:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Park Ridge
Park Ridge, IL , 60068



The Hug-a-Tree Program is offered free of charge and teaches children (age 5-12) how to stay safe and survive in the woods should they ever become lost.

The Park Ridge Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Search and Rescue Team and Community Outreach Team delivers the Hug-a-Tree and Survive program to teach children how to survive in the woods should they become lost. Utilizing a short video and other demonstrations children learn a few of the most basic and vital survival principles such as to tell an adult where they are going, to "hug-a-tree" and stay put if they are lost, how to keep warm and dry in the woods, how to signal for help using a whistle and/or reflector and how to help searchers, on the ground and in the air, find them by making themselves big and by answering their calls. For more information or to request a Hug-a-Tree and Survive presentation for your school or group, please send inquiry to: parkridgecert@gmail.com
