No one sets off on an outdoor adventure expecting a medical problem to occur. However, a potentially hostile environment and lack of facilities can quickly cause a routine situation to escalate into a real medical emergency. Everyone venturing into the wilds should have an understanding of basic first aid and wilderness rescue. Do you know how to properly splint a broken bone? Would you know what to do if a camper fell into a camp fire? Do you know what percentage of rattlesnake bites are dry bites, and how to tell the difference? If not, this informative, interactive and fun class is perfect for the wilderness explorer.
