Train to be prepared in the wild

Tribune staff report

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association is hosting a two-day Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course taught by the Wilderness Medicine Institute of NOLS. This course will provide a foundation of first-aid concepts critical to responding effectively to emergencies in a remote backcountry environment.

This hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts and those working in remote locations. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios. Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.

No previous first-aid training is required. Participants must be 16 or older to attend this course.

Successful course completion earns participants a WMI Wilderness First Aid certification. This certification remains valid for two years.
