First aid as taught by the AHA and Red Cross has been a good baseline but it does leave a lot of the skills out that you need to have to really stabilize someone for EMS to get there.

Wilderness First Aid.

The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course is designed to help you prepare for what emergency that may lurk around the next bend in the trail or behind that boulder. Accidents happen in the woods. People get sick. The weather changes and the temperature drops. Most emergencies in the field are preventable. Even then, Mr Murphy steps in and adds his brand of trouble. Will you be ready?

The WFA class is to introduce you to the skills you need to care for those emergencies far from the nearest definitive care. The class is a mixture of lecture, hands on and outdoor training. It is designed to inform, educate and challenge you to make good decisions in an outdoor emergency. Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.

Upon completion of this 16 hour course you will earn both WFA certification and CPR/AED certifications that are good for 2 years

They are heated in the microwave. Start at 2 minutes and adjust up or down. They can be misted with water for moist heat. Just be sure to dry completely before storing.
