This is the second edition of "Call Out Mountain Rescue? A Pocket Guide to Safety on the Hill", by Judy Whiteside. As before, the book takes the reader through preparation and route planning, what to take and how to pack, 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 potted 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. This second edition contains a handy illustrated first aid guide, for the non-medically trained, to help recognise the nature of any injuries and keeping the casualty comfortable as they await the arrival of a rescue team. There's also a revised countryside section and an updated foreword from Mountain Rescue patron HRH Prince William of Wales. A6 and wirobound, with 170 full colour pages packed with information, and published by Mountain Rescue England and Wales, it is essential reading for the outdoor enthusiast.
