BACK COUNTRY EVACUATION COURSE AND FIRST AID
(Wilderness First Aid Course)
(ONLY 3 SPACES LEFT)
Killington Mountain Guides provides wilderness first aid and safety training for those working on remote sites or traveling in wilderness environments. Unlike standard urban-based first aid courses, these programs are specially designed to cover remote medical emergencies that are beyond the reach of Emergency Medical Services or 911. Furthermore, they can be adapted to your specific needs and that of your group. These trainings are offered both in and outdoors in order to practice intervention techniques during simulations.
This is a practical course designed for individuals working on remote sites or participating in outdoor activities within hours of medical assistance. This course provides participants with an introduction to wilderness first aid, with an emphasis on practical skills, decision making and dealing with environmental conditions. The Wilderness First Aid course may be modified to accommodate other elements of wilderness first aid, outdoor safety or leadership training.
Patient assessment, shock, wound management, burns, fractures and sprains, environmental injuries, common medical problems, first aid kits, leave no trace, land navigation, emergency communications, how to improvise a temporary shelter, and construct an improvised litter for patient evacuation. This course focuses on less class room time, and more time spent in the environment you will be treating patients in. Be prepared for a full day and night outdoors as this course is more tailored towards a search and rescue. KMG prides its self with delivering this course based on actual search and rescues instructors have been involved in. Physical fitness and enterprising curiosty is all that is required.
Participants will be required to have their own equipment prior to the start of the course. (Food and gear list provided upon registration).
For an extra charge members who are not certified in CPR can receive certification on Sunday. Please call or email for further details 802-746-8044 / firstname.lastname@example.org
