Alaska is big. Emergency beacons and satellite communication devices shrink the time it takes for search and rescue crews to find you in an emergency situation.

Chris Hanna and Jenny Neyman, of Soldotna, know from snow-cave survival experience how important those devices can be, and Lt. Col. Scot Milani of the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center knows how they work. Join us to find out more.

Last April, Chris Hanna and Jenny Neyman, of Soldotna, went for an afternoon ski on the Harding Ice Field when a blizzard struck. After their tent was destroyed, they survived four hypothermic days buried in a hand-dug snow cave with little food, only body heat to melt water and constantly deepening snow above them.

Spoiler alert: They survived. Come hear how at 7 p.m. April 28 at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. Excerpts of their talk will be posted here.
