WILDERNESS FIRST AID (WFA)
Join us this October in Centerville for Wilderness First Aid! This 16-hour course is designed for the outdoor enthusiast, trip leader, raft guide, or land agency field staff who want more than what an urban first aid course provides. The WFA is a great introduction to wilderness medicine and basic life support skills. This training focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment of environmental illnesses, recognizing and stabilizing life threats caused by trauma, and calling for a rescue in the event of a wilderness emergency. We will cover skills such as basic life support (CPR for adult/child/infant & AED), Wilderness Anaphylaxis Training, and covers injuries and illnesses common when traveling or working in remote areas. We will learn proper bleeding control methods, heat and cold injury prevention and treatment, as well as how to identify and treat medical issues such as diabetic and cardiac emergencies.
