Wilderness First Aid: What To Do When You Can’t Call 911

Would you know how to treat a snakebite if you were miles and miles from a hospital? What if a family member tripped and suffered a major cut or even a broken bone? What would you do?

Wilderness first aid is the topic of this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio as we talk to Jason Hunt, a survival expert and the co-author with Dave Canterbury of “Bushcraft First Aid: A Field Guide to Wilderness Emergency Care” (Adams Media).

Jason tells us the differences between wilderness first aid and traditional first aid.

He also tells us:

  • When a tourniquet is necessary – and when it can be dangerous.
  • How to care for someone with a bleeding wound or broken bone.
  • Why dehydration is perhaps the biggest concern for someone in a survival situation.
  • What to do if someone is vomiting or has diarrhea.

Jason also shares with us tips for treating snakebites.

We learned a lot by talking to Jason. You will, too!
