Verdugo Hills Council -BSA High Adventure Team presents…
Wilderness and Remote First Aid
A newly revised, 16 hour First Aid course for persons involved in activities that take them beyond the scope of traditional urban emergency medical services, when help is delayed in urban or rural situations, and mass casualty incidents.
Environmental and youth groups are visiting remote regions in ever increasing numbers. While many excursions are held in areas where transportation and emergency services are available, help may still be slow in arriving. This course will be useful when in remote areas, in urban areas during and after disasters, or when emergencies occur during large gatherings, all of which can require care of the victim beyond the skills taught in regular first aid classes.
This course meets Boy Scout High Adventure (including Philmont and the other High Adventure Bases), Girl Scouts of the USA Level II First Aider requirements, and CERT Level II. (However, it is not as comprehensive as the 60 hour High Adventure First Aid – First Responder Course). Wilderness and Remote First Aid includes realistic scenarios where you will decide what is wrong with the “patient” and how to handle the situation, “in town” or miles away from an emergency room or paramedic care.
The fee covers the following materials: textbook, bandages, numerous study handouts, and American Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid Certificate.
You will need to bring pencil, pen; a wrist watch (preferably with a second hand); and a small pen light.
DATES: Saturday, January 23, and Saturday, January 30, 2016
