ALL THINGS FIRE

Creating Fire: Learning the key to Fire Making from ways of old and new.

 

During our one day All Things Fire course students will learn what fire truly is, where it comes from and how to create it using various ignition sources and kindling and fuel materials. Fire making is the most important tool in the wilderness; without it life would be impossible. There is an important link between humans and fire. For thousands of years we have used fires to cook food, keep warm, and simply enjoy a sense of community. Fire provides security and offers a feeling of well-being, making the building and maintaining of it an essential survival skill.

This course takes a thorough look at both modern and traditional methods of creating fires. Students will learn how to start fires with a ferrocerium rod, and flint & steel. We will also explore and practice survival fire lighting techniques using electrical and solar energy. This course provides the skills, knowledge, and assurance students need to light and maintain a fire even in harsh conditions.
