SAFETY EQUIPMENT TO ARRIVE ALIVE!


Equipment featured here is equipment that we have actually used on our trips or on our vehicles. Every item has gotten prolonged, real world use. Some of these reviews go back to 2007 and all of the equipment/items here are still giving good service to Jeep Expeditions members.

How much trauma kit is too much? I guess alot of that depends on your training. Many of our experienced members are certified in Wilderness 1st Aid plus CPR & AED. A few members have become Certified Wilderness 1st Responders. Then we have a few medical professionals in our ranks, a DR, at least 2 RNs, an EMT or two and a Paramedic or two. In fact I am so serious about safety and Emergency 1st Aid on the trail (due to tragic accidents that could only happen off-roading) that I have decided to get my EMT certification in the first half of 2015.

The averge Jeeper should have the minimum of a well stocked personal trauma kit, NOT a 1st Aid Kit you buy at Walmart for $10 because all that is good for is minor cuts, abrasions, spinters and the occasional cactus needle or two. Beyond that your store bought 1st Aid Kit is better off left at home in a true emergency.

Most of you will never see a medical emergency on the trail but in this recreational sport, being prepared can be the difference of making it home or not. Members of Jeep Expeditions witnesses a terrible accident two years ago in Canyon De Chelly. A tour truck carring about 20 passengers lost a castle nut that held the steering assembly together resulting in total loss of control and goind down a 30 foot cliff. The truck rolled upside down and the people who didn't jump off as it was going over, were trapped under the truck. Picture a surplus military duece and an half truck 60 years old with questionable maintenance. This happened deep inside the canyon, cell phones had no service, CB radios were worthless and witness's and the tour operator were not prepared for this. Eventually with Ham Radio assistance help was on its way but more than 45 minutes out. The rangers arrived before the helicopters. Our members being 1st Aid trained and certified and having a number of Trauma Kits volunteered our services. In the end, one person was DOA and the rest suffered mild to severe injuries. Who would have ever expected to run into that situation in the middle of no where. Then there are the things we read and hear about, the winch cable snapping and injuring someone severely, a careless person gets his fingers caught in the winch, the HiLift Jack shifts and someone ends up under a Jeep.

I can't put enough importance of being prepared!
