Cold Water Mishaps
Survival, disaster & safety presentations, workshops & gear
Water is one of the most challenging survival environments. Yet offers viable transportation corridors, a livelihood for fishing and diving, and hours of pleasure for millions of boaters, skiers, surfers, divers, etc. Yet, when the water temperature is cold, below 70° F, it is very unforgiving. When a boat sinks or people find themeless submerged in water, why do so many die needless deaths? This presentation explores the causes of death in water and what can be done to increase life expectancy. What happens physiologically and psychologically. And what a minimal amount of preparation can do to protect you, your family and fellow boaters. Flotation devices, the surprising value of a large plastic bag, and necessary signaling devices.
