Wilderness First Aid
May 4th - 5th
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one and maybe even save a life.
Wilderness First Aid is the perfect course for the outdoor enthusiast or trip leader who wants a basic level of wilderness first aid training for short trips with family, friends, and outdoor groups. The 16 hour long (two-day) program focuses on the skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.
Those who complete the course and pass the written and practical skills will receive a Wilderness First Aid certification from SOLO which is valid for 2 years. SOLO is among the leaders in Wilderness Medicine Training and certification. Coffee and snacks will be provided each day.
Course Requirements: Participant MUST have a current CPR certification upon completion of course. If you do not already hold this certification an optional Adult CPR Recertification Course will be offered on Saturday evening for an additional fee of $50.00
