Purpose:

Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. With an ASHI Wilderness First Aid class, first aid providers in a remote outdoor setting will be better prepared to respond with wilderness first aid training when faced with limited resources, longer times to care for someone, and decisions about when and how fast to evacuate an ill or injured person. This comprehensive 16-hour wilderness first aid course meets or exceeds the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, 2017 Edition

Wilderness First Aid Course Includes:

Information-filled slide presentation covering wilderness and remote first aid from a basic understanding of emergency response in an outdoor/indoor setting to specific techniques and considerations for a wide range of injuries and illnesses.

Wilderness First Aid Classes topics include:

  • Preparation and Assessment
  • Preventing and Caring for Injuries and Illnesses
  • Environmental Hazards
  • Other Wilderness Considerations

Prerequisite:

  • Adult CPR and AED
  • Must be at least 14 year of age or older

Wear comfortable clothes, uniform not required, bring a lunch, pen and paper, and prepare for a knowledge filled day
