Wilderness First Aid

Be prepared for the unexpected with this fun, hands-on introduction to wilderness medicine. If you like to take short trips relatively close to medical resources, work at wilderness camps, enjoy weekend family outdoor activities, or recreate outdoors, this course is for you. Designed for those who work or travel in remote locations, this course includes how to recognize and treat an emergency, including the most appropriate care or evacuation. This course is great for people of all experience levels, and is best suited for those who recreate outdoors where EMS response can be expected in a timely manner (fewer than 8 hours). You’ll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions. Wilderness First Aid is designed for campers, hikers, fishermen, adults and youth who participate in wilderness activities. Materials fee of $55 payable to instructor for certification card and textbook.
