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 effects of injuries.
Wilderness First Aid 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.
Many organizations use this course to introduce first aid and long-term patient care to their staff or members. WFA is recognized by the American Camping Association, US Coast,Guard, and various guides licensing boards as meeting their first aid requirement.
This course does not include CPR. See January 15th for that class.
