Setting up a shelter is an important skill that some people may eventually have to use. It’s often possible that after a storm strikes, you are left with NOTHING but the foundation of your home. You think that you will be able to book a nearby hotel only to find out that they are all full! A tent or shelter can give you the ability to stay on your property until you figure out your next move and have collected all your belongings. It also provides shelter during an evacuation or relocation. The class is also great if you like to go camping or hiking.
