Advice on Avoiding Blisters

Our Team Chairman, John Crowley, has suggested this advice on hike preparation to avoid blisters. The advice stems from the experience in treating blisters at Dragon Skin 2017 and previous Dragon Skins and Scout Hikes. (PDF, about 45kB).

First Aid Kit

Belinda, from our team, suggested this personal First Aid Kit as suitable to be carried by all Scouts and Guides (PDF, about 473kB).

It has four pages, designed to be printed double-sided and carried in each person's first aid kit. There is a form to document treatments. The third and fourth pages are adapted from advice given by police at a recent Bushwalkers' Wilderness Rescue 'Navshield' event.

Pages one and two are suited to Cubs assembling a personal kit for their Boomerangs. Scouts and Venturers could use the whole document. If this standard kit is always carried by every person in the Group – Cubs to Leaders – on all activities and an accident occurs, there will be ample gloves and bandages.
