Ages 14+ and Adult Volunteers: Join us for the opportunity to become Wilderness First Aid Certified! Red Cross training in Wilderness First Aid is an advanced first aid training for situations in which access to medical care is more than 30 minutes away. The training is based on presentations, discussion, and hands-on scenarios with class participants working as a team to practice providing care in an outdoor setting. Segments include advanced skills in controlling bleeding, caring for bone and muscle injury, head and spine injuries, environmental (heat and cold) emergencies, and much more. Wilderness First Aide Certification is good for 2 years.
This training is a two day training with training being about 8 hours each day. Participants can choose to sleep over at Camp Lakamaga or leave Saturday after 5:30 and come back by 9:30am on Sunday.
