Wilderness First Responder Course
Wilderness First Responder
August 19 – August 27, 2017
The Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is a 72 hour 9-day course that provides a comprehensive and in-depth look at the standards and skills of dealing with: response and assessment, musculoskeletal injuries, environmental emergencies and survival skills, soft tissue injuries, and medical emergencies. Although these appear to be the same basic topics covered in our two-day WFA course, they are covered far more extensively, and there is much more hands-on practice. Additional topics, such as CPR, are also included.
