Help with offroad speech!

DOUBLE POST also in General section

I have been voluntold to do a 20-30min speech about off-roading for my Squadron. It needs to center around Safety, touch on needed equipment, planning and common problems. I need to have visual aids and hand outs with emergency procedures i.e. things to do when the poo hits the fan.
I am reaching out to you guys here to tap all the knowledge and years of experience for help. Any suggestion or ideas?

LOL Now thats a real broad subject. You can do a couple hours on winch recovery alone. Squadron, it implies your military. Are you dealing with Hummers? Your going to have to adress basics quickly as far as you topic goes. Center of gravity, knowing what ground your traversing(ie unknown water depth, sand, etc) Basics for winching and jacking)

What kind of accident did you get into?!
That is a broad area to cover. Anything from proper winching, to cob, to knowing the terrain and what the vehicle is capable of. Safety techniques on the trail when you break miles from home.
Its endless really.
