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 inside for the first hour, then outside for the remainder of the evening regardless of the weather.  You should plan to be kneeling 
or sitting on the ground to respond to your patients. Dress accordingly.

Remember it will be dark before we finish, so make sure you have a good light source, preferably a headlamp.

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