Hypothermia Guide to download

Following on from the earlier informative piece in the Fell Runner Magazine on Hypothermia, available to read here:

The Fell Runners Association after some consultation with myself have brought out a concise pocket edition.

It is small enough to fit in a first aid kit or just to pop in your rucksack pocket. They are trying to raise awareness of the dangers of Hypothermia and to provide a better understanding of it causes and responses.

Although aimed at fell runners this is a valuable piece for all who use our hills and if it helps prevent one case then it has been worth it.

You can download this handy hypothermia guide and carry it with you on the hill.
