Today, we’ve got Brett, a paramedic legend from El Paso County CO Search and Rescue. The mountains? Tricky business. One moment it’s beach weather, the next it’s a frigid winter wonderland – and that’s in the summer! Know what you’re packing; it’s not a weekend getaway!
And those space blankets? Not the lifesavers you might think. Weight’s your enemy up there, but be smart. And remember, it’s not just about the med kit; weather’s unpredictable, avalanches are sneaky, and a good medic knows that it’s not always about the medicine.
