This is the first time we are offering this spectacular course in Las Vegas. Be the most prepared person in your group/ are you planning a big trip or spend a lot of time outside. You should seriously consider this course. Essential for anyone who spends a significant amount of time outside or in remote places, the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course will prepare you to make difficult medical decisions. During this fast-paced, engaging course, you will spend half your time outside of the classroom in realistic scenarios, including a full-scale night mock rescue. The internationally recognized NOLS Wilderness Medicine curriculum encompasses a wide range of topics including long-term patient care, wound management, straightening angulated fractures, reducing dislocations, litter packaging, and administering medications. The rigorous 80-hour curriculum is delivered by dynamic educators who have practiced medicine in both wilderness and urban environments. You will leave this course with the tools and confidence to manage patients in the backcountry for multiple days. This 10-day course is ideal for all professionals operating in remote environments. Adult and Child CPR & Airway Management certification is included. Note the course is 10 days long with one day off for a total of 9 days of instruction.

What we're about

WELCOME!
VegasHikers is the premier hiking group in the Desert Southwest! We take more hikes to more places and have the friendliest, most welcoming organizers of any group around. We feature hikes for all skill levels, road trips, camping, and social gatherings. We have events at a huge variety of times, places, and days. We even hike at night! With dozens of organizers and an average of more than an event a day, you're sure to find activities to suit your fancy.

KNOW YOUR LIMITS.
Our organizers are not tour guides, we're not rangers. Going out with us is the same as going out with a few friends. Expect the same risks, take the same precautions. As organizers, we will do our best to give accurate descriptions of the hikes we post. If you're a beginning hiker, a hike's elevation and distance may not mean much to you. Likewise, difficulty ratings are subjective, and a hike that is "easy" to one person may be "moderate" to another. Err on the side of caution. You're much better off going on a hike that's too easy for you than a hike that's too hard or too dangerous for you. As you go on more hikes with us, you'll become more familiar with our ratings and our descriptions, and you'll learn more about your own limits. Ultimately, it's up to you to keep yourself safe out there. You're an adult. Hike within your abilities.

DUES/FEES
There are no membership dues to be a part of this group. It does take money to pay for this site, fill up first aid kits, and keep organizers prepared, so we gladly take donations any time they're offered.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Our group can be defined by five terms, which help guide every decision we make. They are as follows:
1) All are welcome
2) We hike together
3) We come prepared
4) We're all adults
5) We appreciate the outdoors
