Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Faller was hiking into quarter and walked through a bees nest and was stung multiple times in the upper body. The faller knew that he was allergic but had not been stung in over 20 years in the bush. He did not have an eppy pen kit on him. Luckily he was a 3 minute hike to the heli pad and a 30 second flight to the hospital.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

All Crew allergies will be posted in the project book as well on all medi-vac on person procedures. No one who is allergic to bees is allowed on the hill without a eppy pen kit.
