Wilderness First Responder is the industry standard for wilderness medical training and is designed specifically to provide you with the tools to make critical emergency care and evacuation decisions in remote locations. Course topics include, but are not limited to: trauma: wound management, realigning fractures and dislocations, improvised splinting techniques; environmental: allergies, hypo & hyperthermia; medical: gastrointestinal, infections, cardiac and respiratory conditions, patient monitoring and long-term management and care. The course is taught in a hands-on manner with an emphasis being placed on planning, prevention, and decision-making. Read more about the WFR hybrid course on here: http://www.wildmedcenter.com/wilderness-first-responder.html

Current EMTs can register for WEMT module to upgrade their urban EMT to a Wilderness EMT (WEMT); while the practical session is the same for both WFRs and WEMTs, the WEMT website and tests contain more detailed anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology and WEMTs are held to a higher level of mastery during the practical session.

Cost to public: $650. Course materials distributed upon registration. Please contact Genny Gerke at ggerke@collegeofidaho.edu to register.
