The Great Escape:

How to get someone out of the backcountry with the gear in your pack.

Are you a backcountry enthusiast? Do you ever consider what you might do if a friend or travel partner becomes injured and you need to move them to safety with limited resources?

If so - then this is the clinic for you. Dr. Iona Liddicoat, a wilderness and remote first aid instructor with a background in emergency medicine will guide you through several simple techniques that you could use to create three different types of stretcher. This can all be done with simple pieces of equipment that you already carry in your pack.

This clinic is the first of 4 Winter First Aid Series that will be held at the Escape Route, in partnership with Coast Medical Wilderness Training.

Tickets are $15. $5 per ticket will be donated to P.O.W Canada (Protect Our Winters) . Supporting this not-for profit encourages postitive climate change policies, both Canada-wide and internationally.

There will be prizes, and discounts on wilderness first aid courses, plus some special freebies care of POW.

Space is limited to 30, so book your ticket soon to avoid disappointment.

This is the first part of a four part series that will be held at the Escape Route Alpine Demo Centre.
