Past participants say...

"Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, the wrong care can make things worse. Learn a few basic skills to make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one - and maybe even save a life."
