Intro to Wilderness and First Aid

This one-day course will provide the student with an introduction to first aid outside your normal environment. From disaster zones, rural areas, or in the wilderness miles from medical facilities first aid skills and gear are needed. Very commonly members of a group are not trained in dealing with an emergency. Improper care of a trauma patient can compound even simple injuries further endangering the patient or the entire group.
Following this course the student should be able to assess the patient, identify and treat life threating situations. We will accomplish this through classroom instruction, Q&A and practical scenarios to provide the student an opportunity to experience the material.
