Class details: Wilderness First Aid WFA WFA is a 16 hour of fast paced lectures, hands on practice and scenarios going over back country injuries. You learn and practice what to do when the hospital/ambulance is more than one hour away. You learn how to control bleeding, bandaging, splinting, patient care, scene size up, scene safety, recognize and treat for shock, snake/insect bites, hypothermia, heat related injuries, group management and more. Bring to class the packs/gear you carry for that time of year. Wear clothes you don't care if they stained, wet, torn. All students will be "patients" at some time during the practice sessions. You will learn how to improvise WFA tools, materials with what you carry in your packs. Bring your questions. There are no dumb questions.
