Hiking is a popular and active pastime that allows people to explore the local landscape, whilst enjoying being outside in the fresh air. Hiking has become increasingly common, as people lead more sedentary working lifestyles which means that opportunities to exercise are often just limited to leisure activities.
However, accidents can happen even when you are out enjoying yourself and you may incur painful injuries as a result.
Have you had a hiking accident?
If you find yourself or a member of your hiking group in difficulties or injured, then it is essential that you summon help and assistance as soon as possible
- Keep the casualty warm, alert and hydrated. If they become unconscious, then check their Airway, Breathing and Circulation. Perform CPR if necessary. Place the casualty in the recovery position.
