First Aid for Outdoor Related Emergencies

Emergencies can happen anywhere at anytime. The last place you want to be unprepared is when you are far away from help. REMSA’s Outdoor First Aid class will cover all aspects of first aid as well as provide detailed information about outdoor related injuries and illnesses. Some of the topics presented in the course include environmental emergencies, splinting, bandaging, scene safety, head, chest and spine injuries, as well as proper techniques for lifting and moving patients. Participants will have the opportunity to utilize the knowledge learned in the classroom during an afternoon of practice in a local park utilizing the various terrain to put their new skills to the test.
