Wilderness First Aid Course 2 Session 4

April 22 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The dates are: April 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 6:30 to 10 PM. 

You must attend all dates.

The course will be at the Chester County Public Safety Training Campus, 137 Modena Road, South Coatesville PA (across from the South Coatesville Municipal Building).

 

A portion of this class will take place outdoors regardless of the weather. Be sure to be prepared for weather conditions.

Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. With an ECSI Wilderness First Aid class, first aid providers in a remote outdoor setting will be better prepared to respond with wilderness first aid training 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.

 

Wilderness First Aid Course Includes

Information-filled slide presentation covering wilderness and remote first aid from a basic understanding of emergency response in an outdoor setting to specific techniques and considerations for a wide range of injuries and illnesses.

Wilderness First Aid Classes topics include:

Preparation and Assessment
Preventing and Caring for Injuries and Illnesses
Environmental Hazards
Other Wilderness Considerations
