Call Out Mountain Rescue? - a Pocket Guide to Safety on the Hill


Call Out Mountain Rescue 

"Call Out Mountain Rescue? - a Pocket Guide to Safety on the Hill" takes the reader through preparation and route planning, what to take and how to pack it, how best to stay safe in the mountains and what to do if you have an accident.  If you do hit trouble, there’s a run down of the mountain rescue call out procedure and how to relay the relevant information to the emergency services, plus a brief history of mountain rescue and some useful advice on publications, websites and organisations with which to hone your skills and research your trip before setting out.

It has been produced by the organisation that co-ordinates all the volunteer Mountain Rescue Teams in England and Wales.

First published in 2008 and revised in September 2010, this sturdy little A6 guide with 160 full colour pages is packed with information and useful tips and is a must for all mountain enthusiasts. The pic shows the old edition, but we now have the latest updated version available for our customers.

We would not suggest that you carry one of these little books around in your rucksack, but we think it is a very worthwhile read for all hill walkers and buying it will help support Mountain Rescue in England and Wales - hence subject to availability we are offering the 2010 version to customers for just £4.99 with a contribution towards post and packing of £1.50 - order
