GARRISON (PIX11)--On Monday, we told you the incredible story about a 7-year old girl who not only survived a plane crash in Kentucky, but also walked nearly a mile barefoot in freezing temperatures, to get help.

Today, we're taking a closer look into survival tactics and what you and your family need to know.

Shane Hobel from Mountain Scout Survival School in Garrison will provide tips.

Hobel shows how to make a fire out of items you can find in a forest.
