On the trikes we will be carrying a minimal first aid kit for scrapes, bumps, bruises, etc..
The SAG vehicle has a pretty extensive first aid kit but is not equipped like an ambulance.
For emergencies the ride leader has a SPOT Gen3 satellite tracker. The SPOT Gen3 does not require cell phone service and hence works even in very remote areas of the country. The SPOT Gen3 has a one button press will have an emergency ambulance, or helicopter, arrive in the fastest possible time.
If your cell phone is working 911 on the cell phone is better because it immediately connects to the closest possible emergency assistance. We’ll use the SPOT Gen3 satellite service when cell phone coverage is not available.
Individual riders should remember to take any prescriptions or special medications that they might need for the entire trip.
