Resources

On some Peak Mountaineering courses we give out resources and whenever we feel these resources would be useful to a wider audience we'll pop them on to this page.  They are completely free and we are more than happy for anyone to download them for their personal use.  If you wish to use them for commercial purposes please contact us to discuss it beforehand.

2.  If you are caring for a casualty in a first aid situation it is extremely important to be able to monitor their condition until the professionals arrive (this is all explained in more detail in our Top Tip article here).  One way to help you record the information you gather is to keep a casualty monitoring card in your first aid kit.  We recommend printing one on to waterproof paper and keeping a pencil and indelible marker with it so you can write on it in any weather.

3.  A route planner is a great resource for planning a mountain journey.  It will help you work out timings and gain a clearer picture of how much descent and descent to expect as well as being a good place to record key bearings.  A route planner is also the perfect record of your adventure to leave with a base contact.  

Our Route Planner can be easily downloaded here.

 

 

 

4. In a time of emergency it is essential that rescuers or emergency services can find out who they are looking after.  An Emergency Medical Identification Card is a great way to pass on this key information.  We always keep one both on our person and in our first aid kit.  This handy customisable version is available free of charge from the MedIDs website here.  Print it out, trim it out and laminate it.  Job done.
