SELECTING A SITE FOR SHELTER

Topic Progress:

When you realize that shelter has become a high priority, you should start looking for one ASAP. Just remember that there are two main requisites of the ideal site.

They are:

• It must contain the materials you need to make a shelter.
• It should be large enough to house you and leveled enough for you to comfortably lie down in. However, one cannot ignore other aspects that will contribute to their safety.

Other important considerations include:


• If the site is suitable enough for signaling rescuers
• Does it provide proper protection against wild life? Whether the area is free of poisonous plants, insects, or reptiles
