Call out mountain rescue? A pocket guide to safety on the hill
The second edition of this best selling safety handbook has now been published. Now with twenty extra info-packed pages to include a first aid section along with a countryside section and more information on preparation and planning.
New first aid section contains valuable first aid advice for the non-medically trained – how to recognise the nature of any injuries and keep the casualty comfortable as you await rescue with easy-to-follow, simply illustrated instructions on giving CPR and placing the casualty in the Recovery Position, plus a wealth of information about the type of injuries rescue teams encounter.
Revised countryside section and an updated foreword from HRH Prince William of Wales.
Preparation and route planning, how best to stay safe in the mountains and what to do if you have an accident.
This sturdy A6 guide comes with a half-Canadian style cover which means it now has a handy spine whilst still retaining its characteristic wirobinding. It might be a bit too chunky for carrying around in the rucksack, but it’s worth keeping as a handy reference alongside your maps and guidebooks. Its 170 full colour pages are packed with information – making it a must for the outdoor enthusiast.
