Columbia Safety: Basic Wilderness First Aid, Feb. 10, 2018

Columbia Safety will be holding a Basic Wilderness First Aid class on Saturday, February 10th, from 9am – 5pm at their Kennewick facility.

Basic Wilderness First Aid: An intensive 8- to 10-hour course for those who are involved in wilderness recreation. This course may also meet the needs of volunteers and professionals who lead groups on short trips in relatively low-risk situations. $125

Wilderness First Aid classes address patient needs in those situations or environments where EMS is not available, or may be significantly delayed. Possible delay of emergency services becomes an important consideration when dealing with the initial scene/patient assessment. Illnesses and injuries that might only require a brief examination when help is on the way become much more important when you’re left to attend to the victim for a longer, possibly extended period of time.
