Waltham Walk First Aid Guide

Each year the Waltham Walk has First Aid cover provided by  St Johns Ambulance , at the camp site and at the finish. First aid kits will be available at all checkpoints. Should the occasion arise, however, it is necessary for teams to be able to provide immediate emergency aid to cover for the period between any accident or incident and the arrival of professional assistance.

It is therefore the responsibility of each Supervisor to ensure that each team entered has:

  • At least one team member who has a basic understanding of First Aid
  • A First Aid Kit suitable for an outdoor expedition.

Personal Requirements (as appropriate to individual)
eg. Hay Fever tablets, Asthma Inhalers
