Hi wilderness types,
Below is an offer of a Wilderness First Aid course. If you've never taken such a class, it's all about what to do when you've already done required first aid on someone ... but the trailhead is hours and hours away. Of course, it also covers those kind of injuries that take place when camping and hiking, which can be rather different from those that occur around town and home.
Opportunities to take such a course do not come around often. It is absolutely worth the price. I will be there. Hope you can make it.
Hello IMR -
I wanted to let you know about an upcoming Wilderness First Aid course that
is being held in Boise in hopes that you would be willing to share it with
your members and trip participants as an important training opportunity. The
16 hour class is designed to help people confidently respond to medical
emergencies in areas where 911 is delayed or not easily accessible. I know
that IMR has historically offered a WFA class to members; I am hoping that
you will share these dates as an additional chance to receive the training.
Dates: October 1-2, 2016
Times: 8:00am-5:00pm both days
Location: Girl Scouts of Silver Sage - Friendship Square
610 Reserve Street
More information about the course, as well as a link to registration, can be
found here: http://www.longleafmedical.com/LWM-WFA100-10116-Boise.html
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you
for your support!
Have a great day!
