Useful tips for emergencies

On a mountain tour, the smallest accident can have unpleasant consequences and the entire enterprise spirals out of control. First aid cannot be learned during emergencies.
It is best if at least one person refreshes their first aid skills before setting off on a tour.
This is particularly advisable for larger tours in rough terrain.
