Required Equipment

Required Equipment

You should dress and pack as if on a Mountaineers outing at this time of year in the  Cascades. (For example,  if you were heading out for a two day basic glacier climb next weekend, bring that exact pack with you to the scenario session). You will need to use items from you pack to create splints, build shelters, etc.

We will be outside all evening regardless of the weather. You should plan to be kneeling or sitting on the ground to respond to your patients. Dress accordingly.

We will have some first aid supplies for you to use so you do not have to expend the gear in your personal first aid kit.
