Wilderness and Remote First Aid:
The 16-hour American Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid course provides the skills and confidence needed to respond to an emergency when help may be delayed.
This exciting class provides individuals a foundation of first aid principles and skills to be able to respond to emergencies and give care in areas that do not have immediate emergency medical services (EMS) response. This includes preparation for wilderness and remote environments, urban disasters, and natural catastrophes such as earthquakes and hurricanes.
Ideal for scouts, outdoor enthusiasts or employees in remote environments an hour or more from EMS response, our courses can be taught in two-day, three-day, or multi-session formats.
• Primary and Secondary Assessments
• Head (Brain), Neck and Spinal Injuries
• Heat-Related Emergencies and Hypothermia
• Altitude-Related Illnesses, Allergies and Anaphylaxis
• Bone and Joint Injuries and Burns
• Wounds and Wound Infection
The course is based on the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines and offers enhanced content and topics to meet OSHA’s Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs. The program offers flexibility for organizations and their instructors to adapt the course to varying environments.
