Clinic: Basic First Aid Skills - The skills every canyoneer should possess

Introduction to the skills every canyoneer should possess. The course will be taught by Ruth Stewart a Ouray county EMT and canyoneer. The course will be taught from a "canyoneers" point of view and will cover basic first aid skills and what the canyoneer should consider carrying in their kit.

This is precisely the type of knowledge we all want our canyon partners to possess.

This clinic is free but a minimum of three (3) student registrants is required.

    Hey all!

    My basic plan for the class will be to do a little show and tell of what sorts of emergency supplies you typically carry in your pack, discuss the decision tree for self-rescue vs. needing a rescue team, talk a bit about some trauma things (since that the most likely type of emergency to have to deal with in a canyon), and do some hands on practice.

    So if all of you would plan to bring your canyon kits, or at least anything you would consider emergency supplies, that would be great!

    See you on Friday at the tent in the park!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
