This course provides first aid training for remote areas where lack of ready access to medical care requires skills and techniques beyond standard first aid.

 

Topics will include: what is wilderness first aid; patient assessment; chest injuries; shock; head and spine injuries; bone and joint injuries; wounds; hypothermia; heat problems; submersion incidents; medical issues; moving a victim; evacuation guidelines;  improvisation, and more.

 

This training will provide the participant with a two-year Wilderness First Aid Certification from the Emergency Care and Safety Institute. (This certificate will satisfy British Canoeing and ACA First Aid certification requirements.)

IMPORTANT - This course is a 2 session program - 4/6 and 4/7,  8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.  Please register for the entire course on the April 6 event.

Cost will be $130 for members and $145 for non-members.
