WILDERNESS FIRST AID
WILL YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO?
Hiking, running, skiing, climbing, or biking in the backcountry is an exciting adventure! But, it doesn’t come without risk…
If you spend a lot of time recreating outdoors it’s only a matter of time before you, or someone you know, gets hurt. How you react when emergency services are a long distance away can be the difference between a minor inconvenience and major rescue situation. Will you ready to respond when the time comes?
Wilderness first aid is the assessment and treatment of injuries and illness that are experienced in remote locations, typically over an hour from health care services. Time is the essential element distinguishing Wilderness First Aid from basic first aid courses. In this WFA course you will learn how to identify signs and symptoms of common backcountry injuries and illnesses, determine whether they are serious issues that require emergent action or can be dealt with locally.
This WFA course is a great starting point for hikers, runners, mountain bikers, climbers, and anyone who loves to get out and adventure. Check out the information below for more details about course content and locations.
