Survival expert Bob Cooper
Water, warmth, signals, shelter and food are the top 5 priorities in a survival situation, according to survival expert Bob Cooper.
Mr Cooper was in Gingin last week to instruct a group of women in the ways of bush survival. He said he visited Gingin several times a year to teach the course.
Mr Cooper's top tip is do not panic - be rational and not emotional in a stressful situation.
"Knowledge dispels fear so we teach people how to read maps, use a compass or the sun and stars to navigate," he said.
"We also show people how to manage water, create fire and signal for help."
