Training and Education Proposal

Wilderness First Aid (16 hours) Includes CPR Certification Through the Red Cross

Wilderness First Aid is the assessment of and treatment given to an injured or ill person in a remote environment where definitive care by a health care provider and/or rapid transport is not readily available.


This course is geared for remote and backcountry travelers. The course will cover topics such a primary patient assessment, focused spinal assessment, calling for help, SOAP notes, shock, chest injuries, head,  neck and spinal injuries, wound management, bone and joint injuries, burns, abdominal illness, hypothermia, heat-related illness, lightening, altitude sickness, submersion incidents and allergies and anaphylaxis, and first-aid kits. Also, when to make the decision to evacuate—Stay or GO- CPR training will help you to recognize, respond to and care for cardiac medical emergencies.


Participants will learn the basics of patient assessment to determine proper care in a medical emergency.  We will create scenarios common to what you might encounter in a remote setting more than an hour away from front-country assistance.  This will be a fun, fast paced and hands on course in Wilderness First Aid.  Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a Wilderness First Aid Certification card with the American Red Cross good for 2 years. Included will be a CPR training and a 2 year certification.


Participants will receive a Wilderness and Remote First Aid book and skills card and a few goodies to add to their first aid kits.  All training materials will be supplied.
