Wilderness First Aid April 8-9

Calling all Mountaineers:  remember, the best thing you can do for yourself and your backcountry buddies is to be prepared to deal with the unexpected when you're exploring outside.  Climbing doesn't have to be dangerous, but from time to time, emergencies happen.  Hazards abound when you're playing in remote areas:

  • Sprains, strains, fractures
  • Cuts, blisters, and other, more serious wounds
  • Burns
  • Illnesses
  • Falls, leading to head, back, or internal injuries

When you're 10 miles from a trailhead and another hour's drive from a hospital, do you know how to manage these emergencies?

Rain is in the forecast for the weekend, so why not finally take that WFA course you've been thinking about for months?
