Description: 

This is a great course for anyone who ventures outdoors, travels, or wants to help in case of an emergency during a disaster!

DATES: Two-day course, March 7th & 8th; 8:30am-6:30pm both days.  A CPR class is available on Friday, March 6th!

REGISTRATION, and more info, locations and dates: www.solowfa.com

WHY: Mired in a disaster zone, travel or rural area far from a hospital, or natural area miles from an access point … accidents, destructive weather, and terrorism happen, and all-too-often members of a group are not capable of dealing with the emergency. This leads to improper care of the patient, and endangers the entire group. Many recreational accidents are preventable, and improper care of trauma can compound even simple injuries. Very few first aid programs actually address the issues of providing emergency care in a setting where 911 is overwhelmed or not immediately reachable. In this course, classroom instruction and Q&A are interwoven with practical work and problem-solving exercises. Hands-on experience – a most powerful learning tool – during scenarios comprise ~50% of class. You come away with actual do-it-yourself care-giving confidence. Satisfaction guaranteed.

FEE:  $215. You save $60 thanks in part to Walkabout Outfitter’s sponsorship of this class. MEDIC SOLO and Walkabout Outfitter will donate 10% of course proceeds to Roanoke Outside, a local non-profit organization.
