Wilderness and Remote First Aid 2 of 2

January 11 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

         

A newly revised, 16 hour First Aid course for persons involved in activities that take them beyond the scope of traditional urban emergency medical services, when help is delayed in urban or rural situations, and mass casualty incidents.

This course meets Scouts BSA High Adventure (including Philmont and the other High Adventure Bases) requirements, and CERT Level II. (However, it is not as comprehensive as the 60 Hour High Adventure First Aid – First Responder Course). Wilderness and Remote First Aid includes realistic scenarios where you will decide what is wrong with the “patient” and how to handle the situation, “in town” or miles away from an emergency room or paramedic care.

The fee covers the following materials: textbook (printed), study handouts, and ECSI Wilderness and Remote First Aid Certificate. Please register by Friday, December 20, 2019 to ensure enough materials are ordered.

You will need to bring pencil, pen; and a wrist watch (preferably with a second hand).

DATES: Saturday, January 4, 2020 & Saturday, January 11,2020. You must attend both dates to complete course.

TIME: 8:30 AM-to 5:00 PM. (BRING YOUR LUNCH. BEVERAGES WILL BE AVAILABLE ALL DAY)
