Among outdoor professionals and enthusiasts, a commonly accepted list of 10 essential items has been developed to help people deal with some of the more probable incidents that can occur. As the outing leader you'll want to have these 10 essentials with you in the field. Outing participants should also have the 10 essentials for any outing beyond the 1 hour time frame for receiving definitive medical care if an incident occurs. Lists for car camping and backpacking are included if needed.

Get your 10 Essentials together and take them with you during your outing. Encourage each participant to get the 10 essentials as well and to bring them on your outing. The link below contains a list of the 10 essentials.
