Wilderness First Aid

April 4 @ 8:00 am - April 5 @ 5:00 pm

Wilderness First Aid – Taught by Solo Schools

Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one-and maybe even save a life.


The WFA is the perfect course for all Scoutmasters, ASMs, and Adults that are outdoor enthusiasts who wants a basic level of first aid training for short trips with family, friends, and outdoor groups. It also meets the BSA High Adventure and ACA guidelines.


The WFA is 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.
