Take a Wilderness First Aid Course
Get prepared for all of your outdoor adventures with a Wilderness First Aid course! WFA courses are designed to meet the needs of individuals who are responsible for the medical care of others in a wilderness setting, people who work in remote settings, and recreationalists who want to be prepared in the case of an emergency. The course is also for medical professionals seeking ways to apply their skills outside of the clinic setting, as well as people who live in areas that are prone to natural disasters whose aftermath may delay emergency response. Topics in the 16-hour class include: patient assessment, how to provide long-term care with limited resources, the decision of when to call for more help, and treatments such as splinting, wound care and managing spine injuries. The course schedule includes classroom time, as well as extensive hands-on skills practice through medical scenarios and labs. Successful completion results in a 2 year Wilderness First Aid certification. Tuition is $195.00. Registration and payment is required prior to taking the class: https://www.longleafmedical.com/meridianwfa-jan2018.html I look forward to seeing you in class! Katie

What we're about

Public Group

Hiking is a fun way of taking the path less traveled or untraveled. Meet other local hiking enthusiasts who want to start going on more moderate hikes before moving on to the more advanced trails or scrambling. We are courteous to nature but want some adventure too.

In order to have a positive experience it is recommended that you have experience hiking in general and are relatively physically fit.
