wilderness first aid (wfa) training - June 11, 2022

WMC and Wilderness Medicine of Utah (WMUtah) are partnering to offer WMUtah's Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course to WMC members. The course is designed to meet the needs of groups of people traveling in wilderness areas where professional emergency medical services (EMS) are available but may be delayed by hours. The WFA course is well matched to the needs of hiking, climbing, snow sport, and other trips in the Wasatch mountains and surrounding area. After taking this course you will be familiar with some of the most common backcountry problems. You will have practiced patient evaluation skills, common treatment methods, and run through scenarios as an individual and as part of a team. You will be in close contact with others during the course and practicing methods in the field. Methods may be adapted as necessary depending on COVID transmission conditions at the time of the course. The course will be two full days (a Saturday and Sunday). The cost of the course is $200 with two levels of subsidy available. If you are a WMC member you will receive $30 back after completing the course. If you have led 5 or more one-day WMC trip or 2 or more multi-day trips you will receive $100 back after successful completion. Contact the organizer for registration, payment, and subsidy details. Location will be announced, but will be in the Salt Lake/Wasatch mountains area.
