Wilderness First Aid weekend class

Wilderness First Aid provides information on how to handle common injuries and illnesses when medical care is an hour away or more. Participants can choose between the 8-hour basic course and the 16-hour standard course. The standard course certification is accepted by the Boy Scouts of America.

The basic course and the first half of the standard course will be held in a classroom setting. Students will learn to assess a patient, recognize altitude illness, treat wounds from sprains, fractures, insect & animal bites, etc.
