FIRST AID KIT GUIDE
WELL-EQUIPPED FOR AN EMERGENCY: LEARN ABOUT WHAT’S IMPORTANT WHEN BUYING A COMPLETE, COMPACT FIRST AID KIT.
Whether mountaineering, climbing or on alpine tours: Accidents or sudden illnesses are possible even with good preparation. That’s why it’s important – especially in remote areas – to be equipped for an emergency so that you can perform first aid quickly. A suitable first aid kit is thus a vital piece of equipment for every mountain climber.
First aid expert and ORTOVOX ambassador Dani Hornsteiner knows what a good first aid kit should contain and what you should look for when you’re buying one. She is a trainer and head of operations at Bergwacht Bayern (Bavarian Mountain Rescue), and has been giving alpine first aid courses for over 15 years. Here, she draws on her knowledge and experience as a mountaineer and DAV guide for alpine tours and ski tours.
