LEADERSHIP – ACCIDENT / INCIDENT Stop, Think, THEN Act Do anything that needs to be done urgently – with care. Remove people from danger if possible Treat injuries Look after other members of the party Collectively formulate a plan so everyone knows what is happening Consider: If the leader becomes injured – can others take charge?
LEADERSHIP – SENDING FOR HELP You may need help in the event of serious injury or loss of a party member The primary consideration is the safety of the whole group Mountain radios can be used to get help If anyone has to go for help – preferably in a group of 4 (minimum of 2) - clearly mark your route so you can find your way back - both groups should have a map, first aid kit and emergency supplies
LEADERSHIP – WRITTEN MESSAGE Messengers should take a written note with the following information: What has happened and what help you require Who is involved – names, ages, experience, condition What gear is available Contact person Where they are – location, environmental conditions, landmarks, time travelled from road end. Last known whereabouts of missing person.
