Essential First Response

Essential knowledge and understanding for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors

In 2003, my book, Scorpions of Southern Africa inspired and defined a generation. It spurred an interest in the smaller creatures and sparked a fascination with these animals. My Essential First Response framework for spider bites and scorpion stings presents an innovative and structured approach that focuses upon answering the 2 most important questions:

  • How can you reduce the risk of being bitten or stung?
  • How can you provide the  best possible outcome, should a bite or sting occur in both humans and pets. 

This framework  can be applied anytime and anywhere, does not require any special equipment. Essential life skills for everyone who may encounter venomous animals at home, at work or in the environment.
