The Wilderness First Aid course provides an intensive 16 hours of training covering injury assessment, rescuer safety, bleeding, shock, orthopedic injuries, long term patient care, and treatment with materials at hand during practice sessions. When you are participating in outdoor activities that take you more than 1 hour away from medical care, wilderness first aid provides a significant difference in survival and minimizes the long term effects of injuries. This course is a requirement for units traveling to any of the national bases; it is highly recommended for high adventure activities when medical help may be delayed. Instruction is in a classroom setting with several sessions held outdoors, so please plan accordingly and dress for the weather. CPR/AED is a prerequisite for certification in this course.
