Wilderness First Aid Training
May 3 @ 7:00 pm - May 5 @ 10:30 am
These courses will provide participants a foundation in first aid principles and skills to be able to respond to emergencies and give care in areas that do not have immediate medical services (EMS) response.
This course is approximately 16 hours long (beginning Friday evening at 7:00 pm and continuing on Saturday from 8:00 am until approximately 10:30 pm). Participants may stay in the Dan Beard or James West cabins or choose to tent camp next to the cabins on Friday and Saturday night. Throughout the course, participants will be required to apply hands on skills that will be covered in class and should wear comfortable clothing suitable for outdoor exercises. It is suggested that you bring sleeping bag, ground pad, first aid kit (that you plan to use in a High Adventure setting), flashlight, sunscreen and water bottle. Also have your BSA Health Form and proof of your current CPR/AED training (within two years) or your blended learning course completion certificate.
The course fee includes a useful American Red Cross workbook and reference cards along with Friday evening snacks, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner. The course will be limited to a maximum of 50 participants. Certification is for 2 years. Questions on recertification or becoming current in CPR/AED should be directed to David Kelley at (248) 930-0243 email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Don Ray at (734) 455-7214 email: email@example.com .
