Las Vegas (KLAS) — In Part 4 of this Desert Survival series, 8NewsNow talked with Lynn Kasch of Red Rock Search and Rescue about what to bring. And we focus on how one practical item that almost all of us have can actually help us in the event of a trail injury. I am.
“This is actually a small exercise mat,” Kasch told 8NewsNow. “Many hikers have a sleeping mattress, or else they have something to put their knees on when they need to sit on the floor of a hot, rocky desert, so do this I have, but if I break, stretch my arm like this and fall down, rest here, wrap it like this, or ACE wrap it, a splint is created. Such an artificial. Kind of splint. So this is part of what we call improvisation, when you have this we also like to fix the arm like this, the sling is really useful , But I don’t have a sling, but what I have in my pocket is a safety pin. What you can do with this, you can take your shirt with you. You can wrap it like this You can fasten the shirt to the front of the shirt with a safety pin. Now you have a sling. “
