Hug a Tree patch
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
