Wilderness First Aid November 4-5, 2017

It's the simple things.

Just returned from the Grand Canyon, I can't help but recall my first crossing a few years ago, when one of my companions suffered hyponatremia.  Symptoms often mimic dehydration, but giving fluids in this situation could be lethal.  Yes, hyponatremia can kill. Would you know how to distinguish between the two conditions, and how to treat the insidious electrolyte imbalance?

WFA training isn't just for those who organize and lead backcountry adventures; it's for all of us who enjoy hiking, paddling, climbing, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, and riding in remote areas.

Anything can happen - why not be prepared? If your weekend is free, join us for the class that could be a game-changer in a future emergency:

If you can't make it this weekend, look for a future training opportunity and do yourself and your outdoor community a favor by gaining the competence to respond when the unexpected happens.

Play Safe,

Terrie
