Wilderness first aid is the specific discipline of First Aid which relates to care in remote areas, where emergency medical services will be difficult to obtain or will take a long time to arrive. The American Camping Association recommends a WFA certification if EMS will take more than 1.5 hours to arrive.

Hazon is partnering with Foster Calm to offer a WFA class with lots of hands-on skills practice. The emphasis is on making good decisions by staying calm and safe, doing a good patient assessment, and having good communication and leadership.

In addition to a half day of outdoor scenario practice of first aid and leadership skills, this class focuses on practicing skills and covering: patient assessment, shock and bleeding, head and spinal injuries, wounds, musculoskeletal injuries, heat and cold illnesses and much more. Gain some good tools and knowledge to handle a wilderness first aid emergency. Successful completion of this 16 hours class includes a Wilderness First Aid certificate.

We will spend a little time framing this course in Jewish texts and teachings and are pleased to be joined by Wilderness Torah staff participants and co-sponsored by the San Francisco Bureau of Jewish Education.

Please call or email Deborah.newbrun@hazon.org 415 397-7020 with any questions you may have.
