About the Event
Every Person Who Prepares is One Less Person Who Panics in a Crisis
The Woodsrunner Wilderness First Aid training program is intended for individuals who spend time or work within remote or wilderness environments, and who desire, or are required, to be certified in wilderness first aid knowledge and skills.
Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. When a person becomes injured, or ill, in the wilderness the time and distance to traditional emergency medical services may be hours or even days. First Aid providers in a wilderness setting will be faced with limited resources, must care for a patient for a much longer time, and need to make decisions about if, when, and how fast to evacuate an ill or injured person.
The goal of this training is to help participants develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to respond to a medical emergency in a remote or wilderness setting. Our Wilderness First Aid training includes real-life scenarios and hands-on skill practice to enhance the participant experience.
