Wilderness First-Aid (Batesville, Arkansas)

April 8 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

This is our one day wilderness first aid class that is centered around the most common injuries and medical issues that may arise while in the wilderness. Unlike many other wilderness first aid classes, we take this class a step further in providing practical exercises that not only cover the diagnosing and treating of patents, but also the evacuation if necessary. Students will need to bring their first aid kit, along with other items that they would normally take with them on a day trip, for example, trekking poles, rain gear, survival kit, water, extra clothing first-aid kid etc The class will be 8 hours in length and consist of 5 hours of classroom and 3 hours of practical exercises. During the practical exercises you will use the normal items that you have with you to build litters, splints, etc and learn to extract patients if necessary.  You will need to RSVP for the class with Katrina at the University of Arkansas-Batesville at 870-612-2082.  Cost of the class is determined by the University of Arkansas-Batesville.
