Backpackers, paddlers, hikers, cyclists and other outdoor adventurers who spend time in the backcountry, this course is for you. 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.
This is a 16-hour, two-day course. You’ll learn what to watch for to prevent emergencies and you’ll also learn what to do when things go wrong in spite of good planning. This course includes a textbook, classroom training, and hands-on practice in a natural outdoor setting.
The class will be held August 14-15, 8 AM to 5 PM each day. Your Solo Wilderness School instructor will be Chris Broughton-Bossong BA, WEMT, AEMT.
