First Aid

In the wilderness, first aid becomes paramount because unique hazards may exist and additional medical help is often hours away - once it can be contacted. When an emergency situation arises in the wilderness, everyone at the scene becomes a "first responder," so the most important thing to be prepared with is knowledge of emergency first aid treatment (we have some great resources on this in our emergency preparedness books section).

Some wilderness first aid supplies like poison oak/poison ivy soaps and tick removers may not be the difference between life and death, but others - like thermal blankets - could be. Always research the hazards present where your next backcountry adventure will take place, and go in prepared!
