Snake Bite Compression Bandaging Practice

Snake Bite Compression Bandaging Practice

Sat 24th Feb 2024


Part-day walk, Training

What do you do if a snake bites you on the butt? Join qualified Wildlife snake handler and educator Allan Donnelly on a relaxed walk in Farrer Ridge Nature Reserve. During a break, Allan will talk us through his snake bite protocol. We will then split into pairs and practise compression bandaging (not on a butt!) and immobilisation/being the patient, under his supervision. For leaders only. Bring your snake compression bandage with you (it’s best kept in an easily accessible part of your pack). Do your pre-reading here:

Allan will also cover blister prevention and management. Allan is a practising podiatrist and experienced bushwalker.
