Attention Teens! Are you adventurous and want to know what it takes to survive the extremes of the elements in the outdoors? Avondale Fire-Rescue offers a unique overnight experience where teens, ages 12 - 17, will learn and become aware of the dangers associated with being in a desert environment and learn to respond appropriately to hazardous situations to achieve the best possible outcome. Training will emphasize sheltering skills, signaling techniques, emergency first aid, instincts and situational awareness.
The Teen Outdoor Survival Camp is scheduled to start at noon on Saturday April 30, and concludes at noon the following day. Skills will be taught by Randy Anglin of Lionstrike Training Group, and professionals from Avondale Fire-Rescue, Division Chief Art Snapp and Community Services Coordinator Sue Pistoia. New to this year's training: a representative from the Phoenix Zoo will share and show how animals adapt to survive adverse conditions. The camp will be conducted at the Avondale Fire Training Facility; 399 E. Lower Buckeye Road.
Registration is required, space is limited. Cost is only $50, which includes meals. Students are encouraged to bring personal tents and sleeping bags to this overnight training.
