Snake Bite First Aid
DO NOT WASH BITE SITE as this will possibly delay treatment at the hospital, as washing will not give the Venom Detection Kits (VDK) a reading to identify what anti-venom is required for treatment.
- Calm and reassure the person who is bitten
- Use a heavy Crepe bandage to apply a pressure bandage (the same pressure for a sprained ankle). Start the bandage at the ends of the limb and continue all the way to the shoulder/hip.
- Mark on top of the bandage the bite location so the Doctor knows where to cut the bandage to obtain a swab for the VDK.
- Call 000 or 112 on mobiles
- Remain as still as possible and wait for emergency services to arrive

What you can do at home to help keep snakes from residing on your property
The Shoalhaven region is largely made up of farm lands, rural properties and developments that are surrounded by state forest or national parks. These areas are perfect snake habitat. As our endemic species are shy, secretive and well camouflaged animals, you are most likely to only see a small percentage of snakes that pass through your property.
