The Merrickville Venturer Scouts partake in many high adventure activities such as seven day wilderness canoe trips and snowshoe hiking up 4,000 foot mountains. In many cases professional medical attention is days away. It is imperative for our risk management that both our adults and youth have the necessary tools at their disposal in the event of a medical emergency.
All our existing first aid kits have been retrofitted with the Wilderness Medical Systems Flashcards as they provide clear and concise instructions that can quickly be referenced under pressure. Going forward we have standardized on the Wilderness Medical Systems first aid kits as they provide a good combination of top quality items, perfect for our extensive trips.
The first set of six Wilderness Medical Systems DASH kits went into our emergency kits for our winter mountaineering. The excellent customer service received to personalize the kits was a bonus!
