Hug-A-Tree & Survive ProgramHug A Tree and Survive
The Red Rose K-9 S.A.R. Team is actively involved in presenting the nationally-known "Hug-A-Tree & Survive" program which teaches children what to do to prevent from getting lost and what to do if they become lost. Many of the things the children learn assist searchers in a more rapid recovery. Basic survival skills are also taught. The program was developed by searchers in California who were involved in a massive search, in mountainous terrain, for a 9 year old boy who succumbed to hypothermia.
