wilderness first aid (wfa) training - June 24, 2023

WMC and Wilderness Medicine of Utah (WMUtah) are again 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. The course will be two full days (a Saturday and Sunday). The cost of the course is $225 with two levels of subsidy available. If you are a WMC member you will receive $35 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 $115 back after successful completion. Contact the organizer for registration, payment, and subsidy details. Location is planned to be the WMC lodge in Brighton.
