Homemade isotonic drinks to prevent dehydration: 1L of water, lemon or orange juice, 6 teaspoons of sugar t 1 teaspoon of common salt. If someone on a route feels a little dehydrated, you can add a little sugar to your water.

Empty sealed plastic bag or knotted: in case of amputation, place the member inside the bag. Immerse the bag inside water with ice, NEVER ice only.

Plastic gloves (to prevent contagion).

Sales, scissors, tweezers etc.

Whistle/ Mirror / Candle with albal paper – emergency situations.

IMPORTANT: Ask “always” before giving any medication if you take other medications or if you have allergies. If in doubt, do not administer.
