How Can You Best Prepare for an Emergency in an Out-of-the-Way Place?

What if you need medical attention and you’re far from traditional medical resources? This could happen during fun activities such as hiking, backpacking or mountaineering in remote mountain areas. Or you could get caught in a natural disaster you have no control over, like an earthquake, hurricane or major flood.

Wilderness medicine developed as a concept to help you be informed, be prepared and cope with some of the dangers you may face.

The resources below will help you be equipped in case you’re caught in an emergency where you must depend on yourself.
