Wilderness First Aid (Saturday and Sunday)
Saturday, March 3, 2018, 8:30 AM until Sunday, March 4, 2018, 5:00 PM
This course provides first aid training for remote areas where lack of ready access to standard 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; 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/PNA First Aid certification requirements.)
IMPORTANT - This course is a 2 session program - 3/3 and 3/4, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Please register for the entire course on the March 3 event.
Cost will be $130 for members and $145 for non-members.
