You’ll leave the class having built an emergency shelter (that is quick to setup) for your search pack.      Don’t you hate it when Indiana weather changes fast and you are 3+ miles from your truck?  Or worse you find a missing person in good condition and operations asks you to shelter in place until sunrise!    No worries, this shelter requires no trees or ropes to setup.   Best of all you can be in it and dry before your crewmate starts snoring!    Watch the You Tube video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pneD0wu8O3w  ) to see how easy it is to setup.     We will provide all the parts,  tools and instruction to allow you make this tarp shelter.     Besides leaving with an easy to setup shelter  in your search pack, you’ll have a quality tarp that can be used for other needs, we’ll even show you a few other versions of shelters you can make with the same tarp.    


$35 for INSARA members, $40 for non-INSARA members.  Instructors: Tymme Laun, Joel Grant (both have a background in building/modifying SAR gear and general fabrication), When: 3/19/16, 10:30AM on the West side of Bloomington.   Maximum class size 16.    Signup for this class closes March 12.
