Write Up:
It was a good crowd that showed up just before a major snowstorm arrived. I began with an introduction of the basic principles of what is involved in taking care of an injured person in the wilderness. Ways to evaluate the scene and approach safely were discussed, followed by the priority of care and treatment. Everyone participated in exercises on how to control bleeding and other aspects of care. The day was followed by extrication and Q & A.
