First Aid, Mountain Rescue & Military Trauma Care

The Blizzard Survival Blanket is recommended as the first choice for keeping casualties warm by the 2007 Prehospital Trauma Life Support Military Version Sixth Edition (PHTLS Military Version 6E), produced by the globally respected National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT).

PHTLS says medics' initial response to trauma cases should be: "After any immediate life-threatening issues are addressed, wet clothes should be replaced with dry clothes, if possible, and the casualty should be wrapped in a Blizzard Survival Blanket.”

Versatile & Effective

It is often impractical to manoeuvre an injured person in a sleeping bag, so some form of wrap around insulation must be used instead. The Blizzard Survival Blanket is first opened, then the casualty placed on top of it. The blanket can then be wrapped around and re-sealed using the self-adhesive closure provided, to give full thermal and weather protection.

The blanket contains 50% more material than the Blizzard Survival Bag, enabling it to protect even very large casualties or those wearing thick clothing, life jackets etc. The self-adhesive closure works in cold and wet conditions, and can be opened and re-sealed many times

Hot Tips

By carefully sealing the blanket to form a tube it can be used as a sleeping bag for one or two persons (particularly useful for re-warming chilled casualties). Carry a small roll of duct tape to help "sculpt” the blanket into any desired shape, reinforce holes, mend slight damage etc. The blanket can also be sealed around an ambulant casualty, affording them a high degree of protection, yet allowing them to walk. Arm holes can be cut if necessary.
