Wilderness First Aid

This entry-level course focuses on the application of first aid techniques and principles to a wilderness environment. Our objective is to give you the hands-on skills and knowledge that will enhance your peace of mind when faced with medical emergencies far from the nearest hospital or physician. 

At the conclusion of the course you will be able to differentiate life- or limb-threatening emergencies requiring emergency evacuation from minor injuries and medical conditions treatable in the field, and you will be able to apply fundamental first aid skills to assess and treat injuries common to the outdoor setting.

Subjects Covered:

  • Introduction to Wilderness First Aid - how and why it differs from standard first aid
  • Patient Evacuation and Transport - how, and more importantly when, to move an injured person
  • Patient Assessment - from the ABCs to a detailed physical examination
  • Bleeding, Wounds, and Shock - care for everything from minor blisters to life threatening bleeding
  • Sprains, Strains, and Fractures - recognize and treat these common wilderness injuries
  • Circulatory and Respiratory Emergencies - early recognition of these life-threatening emergencies
  • Common Medical Problems - provide relief from common conditions in uncommon circumstances
  • Environmental Injuries - hazardous plants, animals, insects, and weather conditions
  • Preventive Medicine - water purification and field sanitation
  • First Aid Kits - essential items and improvisation
