WILDERNESS FIRST AID, BASIC FIRST AID, CPR and AED
It is always a good time to starting preparing for your unit’s outdoor adventures. Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier and Sea Base require that at least one member of each crew be certified in WFA and CPR. It is also important to have this training when doing any treks or outings that are in back country and similar situations where professional emergency care is more than 30 minutes away.
The Wilderness First Aid course is designed to introduce you to the concepts of medical care in a wilderness setting. The course focuses on skills, practice and realistic scenarios through hands-on skills and simulations to teach you scene and patient assessment, basic and advanced first aid techniques, CPR, AED and basic life support skills, minor trauma, environmental topics, allergic and toxic reactions, wound care, bandaging (classic and improvised), bone and joint injuries, splinting, head and spine injuries (assessment and decision making) and other “common” medical emergencies. Included in this course, you will also receive your basic CPR and AED use as well. For more information and schedule dates contact John Longhofer email: johnlonghofer@gmail. For More info…
