Winter Survival 2016 - Canadian Forces

This week we had the pleasure of working with 18 of Canada's finest infantry soldiers from 3 RCR. We spent the week sharing our knowledge, skills and abilities with them and than watching as they took those skills and applied them to survive the harsh weather conditions.

These soldiers were not allowed any personal equipment. No extra clothing, no food, no man made shelters and no sleep systems. They had the clothing worn and a few cutting tools which we provided.

With no hesitation they assssed their situation, their equipment, their environment and then put a plan in motion. Hard charging professionals who worked together to complete the mission. A true pleasure for us here to be able to watch and learn from them as well.

Over the next week I'll be adding photos to this site as well as the Facebook page. Be sure to follow us on Facebook at Beyond the Fire School of Survival.
