Hands-on learn how to save life & limb when mired in the wilderness of an urban disaster zone, rural area far from hospital, or natural area miles from an access point. Accidents, natural disaster, 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. Very few first aid programs actually address the issues of providing emergency care in a setting where 911 is overwhelmed or not reachable. In this course, learn how to care for an injured/ ill person during the critical minutes or hours before ambulance/ hospital arrive. This course involves a blend of classroom instruction and hands-on problem solving rescue scenario practice (a most powerful learning tool, comprising 50% of the class). You will come away with actual do-it-yourself care-giving confidence. No prerequisites. 2-year WFA certification through SOLO.
