Disaster+Travel+Wilderness First Aid Course

June 1 @ 8:30 am - June 2 @ 6:30 pm

Hands-on learn how to save life & limb, when mired in the wilderness of an urban disaster zone, travel or rural area far from hospital, or natural area miles from an access point, during the critical minutes or hours before ambulance arrival. Blend of classroom instruction and hands-on problem-solving rescue scenario practice. Come away with actual do-it-yourself care-giving skill and confidence, and 2-year SOLO certification. Counts as WFR Recertification, too. No prerequisites.

YOUR SPOT IS NOT RESERVED UNTIL YOU’VE COMPLETELY REGISTERED AT http://WWW.SOLOWFA.COM

WHO: Open to the general public, adults & teens with solid attention spans. Know your loved ones are safe wherever they are.

WHY: Mired in a disaster zone, travel or rural area far from a hospital, or natural area miles from an access point … accidents, destructive weather, and terrorism happen, and all-too-often members of a group are not capable of dealing with the emergency. This leads to improper care of the patient, and endangers the entire group. Many recreational accidents are preventable, and improper care of trauma can compound even simple injuries. Very few first aid programs actually address the issues of providing emergency care in a setting where 911 is overwhelmed or not immediately reachable. In this course, classroom instruction and Q&A are interwoven with practical work and problem-solving exercises. Hands-on experience – a most powerful learning tool – during scenarios comprise ~50% of class.

TIMING: This is a 2-day class, Saturday and Sunday, 8:30am – 6:30pm or 7pm each day.

Fee: $195 (note: another organization in the region charges $275! You save $80, thanks in part to Great Outdoor Provision Co. (GOPC) sponsorship of this class).

Charity Fundraising: GOPC and MEDIC will donate 10% of course proceeds to the Umstead Coalition, a local non-profit.
