This is a basic first responder "jump bag" designed for the field arborist. It has the needed items to control major bleeding and patient packaging of minor breaks. Also allows the trained responder to treat minor abrasions, cuts, and punctures in the event of minor injuries where the patient will return to work that day, or even to prepare a patient for transport. There is room in the bag for additional diagnostic equipment and aid items. This kit can be easily transported aloft and far exceeds the capabilities of stock OSHA-compliant first-aid kits. This kit contains the components listed below which the user can load in the desired configuration in the Conterra Patrol II bag.

Tree work is hazardous; a slip, accident, or unseen hazard could mean you need to get someone's attention at a distance and over the sound of saws. A whistle can summon help, alert someone to a hazard or get another climber's attention with a loud blast up to 115 decibels. New this year is the FOX40 classic, tri-chamber whistle, which can be heard up to 1 mile away!
The retractable lanyard (sold separately) is a handy way to keep your whistle out of the way, but easy to draw and use when needed.
