First Aid on The Delaware River

To treat real-life wilderness first aid situations, you must be trained in first aid. Common sense tells you that you should avoid getting hurt in the first place. Be extra careful in backwood areas where it could take hours to get help.

Serious injury or illness in remote areas will usually involve evacuation to medical facilities. You should always bring a cell phone with you and know where the nearest ranger or law enforcement agency is.
