First Responder Course
Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is the ideal medical training for
outdoor educators, guides, SAR team members, and others who work or play
in remote areas.
Wilderness Medicine differs significantly from conventional EMS courses
and other programs that are oriented toward the urban environment. This
80-hour course will teach participants how to manage medical and trauma
situations in remote settings when access to 911 or a hospital is
unlikely or delayed. Learn how to improvise with what's readily available.
Explore options when medical evacuation is not an option.
Topics include patient assessment, body systems, toxins, near drowning,
dislocations, wilderness rescue, hypothermia, and much more.
Typically, half of your day will be devoted to classroom lecture and
discussion with half outdoors for practical skills training and
scenarios. Evenings are reserved for study and assignments. You should
expect rescue scenarios with made-up victims and simulated wounds to
prepare you for backcountry emergencies. Sessions may be videotaped for
enhanced learning. You will receive a three-year WFR certification.
NO PREVIOUS MEDICAL EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.
We recommend reserving space early as class size is limited. If you would
like to schedule a private class for your own group, advance notice is
required. Please contact us for rates and availability at 702-293-5026 .
