Medicine in the search and rescue setting is unique because all you have to work with is what’s in your pack and what’s around you, so it’s important to be resourceful and creative with what you have. Here is the list of items of the first aid kid we carry as search and rescue personnel. Use it to create your own first aid kit to bring with you on your next adventure!
One of my passion projects is leading the medical team of my local search and rescue organization. We routinely deploy to save people from tragedy, disaster, and sometimes their own stupidity. My purpose in writing this post is to help you keep yourself and your loved ones as safe as possible when you venture into the Great Outdoors.
