Wilderness First Aid
April 27, 2021 - April 28, 2021
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This course will be held at the St. Charles County Klondike Park in Augusta MO.
Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. This could mean any instance where definitive medical care is greater than an hour away. This includes nature outings, forestry work, or during a natural disaster such as earthquake or tornado where the EMS system has become severely overloaded with calls or unable to respond in a timely manner due to conditions.
With an ECSI Wilderness First Aid class, first aid providers in a remote outdoor setting will be better prepared to respond when faced with limited resources, longer times to care for someone, and decisions about when and how fast to evacuate an ill or injured person. This comprehensive 16-hour wilderness first aid course meets or exceeds the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, 2017 Edition.
Participants attending this course should be wear comfortable clothing as there will be physical participation. Participants should also be prepared to participate in outdoor activities regardless of weather.
During registration you will need to choose if you would prefer an electronic book or physical book. an optional field guide may be ordered during registration by using the appropriate ticket choice. Your seat will be secured once your registration and payment is complete.
This course covers a great deal of material in a rapid pace while having a good time as well.
