Law Enforcement Students Practice Survival Skills
On Friday February 15, students from the Law Enforcement Program traveled to Woods Pond in Bridgton to ice fish and practice winter survival skills. Led by their instructor, Mr. McDermott, the students learned about baiting and setting ice fishing traps, laws relating to equipment and licenses, and also how to dress appropriately for outdoor winter activities.
The students were joined by local U.S. Army recruiters Sgt. Bentley and Sgt. Fernandez. Despite the bitter cold and a fast, furious snow squall, students learned a lot while having a great outdoor day in Maine.
