Lentz, Steven C. MacDonald: Books A number of these strategies were used by Rob Latimer at the 2010 Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon after his team-mate Martin Potter was involved in a serious fall in Glen Fyne - Rob was unable to find a first aid kit and his improvisation with clothes which they had carried with them kept Martin safe and warm until help arrived. We believe first aid is best taught by practical and progressive training which allows key skills to be built up gradually - all our courses place a strong emphasis on learning by doing.
