About Wilderness First Aid Training
CATS is pleased to sponsor this class for trail volunteers, hike leaders, and anyone 16 years and older. The class includes a “back country” or “wilderness” component to traditional first aid training so people are prepared in case there are injuries on trail projects and hikes. The 4-hour class teaches skills to assess and treat cuts, bleeding, muscular and skeletal injuries, anaphylaxis, shock and medical related illnesses.
Kevin Shaw, owner of Split Rock Outfitters & Guides, will be your instructor. Kevin is a Critical Care AEMT, Wilderness EMT, NYS Certified Instructor Coordinator, and First Aid Instructor. Check out the organization’s Facebook page.
