Have you ever wondered what you would do if you or someone in your group was injured on a hike, backpack or climbing trip where calling 911 is simply not an option? 

Urban first aid courses cover what to do in the minutes before the Emergency Medical Services arrive and have limited application in wilderness emergencies.

The Wilderness First Aid Course (WFAC) teaches the skills essential to managing trauma or medical emergencies in a WILDERNESS environment. We have trained hikers, backpackers, climbers, guides, trip leaders and other wilderness adventurers since 1978. 

The WFAC is based in the greater Los Angeles area and classes are taught in the Mt. Baldy area. WFAC is an educational non-profit organization. We are run by an all volunteer staff which allows us to keep tuition fees low.
