TVO Survival Show - Emergency Response Tips
ON AIR: Tuesday, March 14 - 05:00 AM

You're having dinner with your family and suddenly your son starts to choke. Do you know what to do? If you get lost in the wilderness, do you know how to survive? Or, if your spouse breaks her leg while hiking and help is hours away, do you know how to wrap the leg and who to call? If you answered "no" to any of these questions, then today's show is for you. Our guests will teach you everything from CPR to treating broken bones to which wilderness plants you can eat. As well, learn how to spot signs of heat stroke, hypothermia and near drowning. Our guests are: Mike Webster, Executive Director of Wilderness Medical Associates and David Arama, Director of WSC Survival School.
