With Christmas just a day away the malls and stores are a buzz with last minute shoppers looking to pick up that great gift for their loved ones. Given our wonderful winter playground here in Eastern Ontario it's no surprise that many gifts revolve around winter sports and hobbies.
Over the next week many people will head out on their new cross country skis, snowshoes and even snowmobiles. Many of these people will have a novice or beginner level of experience but their excitement will blurr any fear of the danger that exists in our forested environment during the harsh winter months.
From us here at Beyond the Fire School of Survival we wish you and your loved ones a very safe and happy holidays. Please remind your family and friends to plan ahead, be prepared and always be vigilant and aware of the dangers.
