About this Event

Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one-and maybe even save a life.

WHO IS THE WFA FOR?

The WFA is the perfect course for the outdoor enthusiast or trip leader who wants a basic level of first aid training for short trips with family, friends, and outdoor groups. It also meets the ACA guidelines.

WHAT IS TAUGHT?

The WFA is 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.

WHAT TO BRING:

Any snacks, lunch (and dinner if you plan to participate in both certifications), and drinks you may want or need during each day. Pen and paper

Your personal/ preferred backpacking gear (such as a backpack, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tarp/ tent/ whatever you use for shelter while camping, and any other gear you typically have with you when backpacking. Having your own gear for the course allows you to learn how to improvise in a realistic manner during a medical emergency while participating in the hands on portion of the course).

Rain gear/ cold weather gear (the certifications will happen rain or shine, regardless of the temperature- and some portions of the class will be held outside).
