Wilderness First Aid 2023
Wilderness first aid (WFA) is a course for everyone planning a remote high adventure ranging from lay responders to medical professionals. It focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment for an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician or rapid transport is not readily available. This is defined as being two hours or more from a hospital.
This 2-day class prepares you to handle serious back-country emergencies. Wilderness First Aid is a comprehensive series of lessons in how to react and respond in remote, life threatening situations. Lots of activity and hands-on work in classroom and outdoor scenarios keeps it fun!
Scout leaders and older Scouts with some First Aid training and a serious interest in advancing their knowledge. You should be familiar with the material in the First Aid Merit Badge pamphlet. WFA certification is required for the BSA High Adventure bases.
