Why you should take a Wilderness First Aid class?

If you are an outdoor enthusiast that spends time hiking, paddling, climbing or camping, having the skills to help an injured person in the wilderness is essential. 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. The curriculum also goes over Spine Injury, Head Injury, Shock, Wilderness Wound Management, Musculoskeletal Injury, Heat Illness, Cold Injury, Lightning, Altitude Illness, The Medical Patient and Anaphylaxis.
