WILDERNESS First RESPONDER
Wilderness First Responder
We teach the prevention, assessment, and treatment of injury and illness in remote and austere settings.
Students will be able to:
Understand self-aid in a woodland environment
Treat injury, illness, and environmental problems as it pertains to themselves and others
Perform basic medical and rescue skills
Make decisions about the need for and urgency of evacuation
Wilderness First Responder is a 60-hour program. If you like to take extended trips where medical resources are delayed for days, work at wilderness camps, or recreate outdoors with groups, this course is for you. This course is great for people of all experience levels and is best suited for those who recreate outdoors where EMS response is more than 24hr away. You'll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions. You'll learn both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.
