New Year, New Gear - update your First Aid Kit!

Happy New Year MAA!

High mountains, granite cradled lakes, lush meadows bursting with color, swift rivers through pristine wilderness; we get it. This is what draws us outside, too.

Our family - the outdoor community - count on each other to protect and use wisely our public lands, practicing LNT and minimizing our impact. An important component of our philosophy is to to be prepared to help each other in the event of an emergency. When we effectively manage injury or illness encountered in the backcountry, we reduce the strain on EMS and promote efficient utilization of resources for maximum benefit(at the same time influencing a positive outcome for whomever you're lending a hand).

If you travel or play in remote places, it's the right thing to do to be trained in WFA. After all, when you have an accident on trail, will you be grateful for the WFA certified companion who competently manages your injuries? Ditto.

Check out our training on January 19-20:

Play safe out there!
