I am now 8 days through a 10-day, 80-hour Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course. The course teaches students how to respond to medical emergencies when the urban practice of calling 911 and waiting is not an option. I'm amazed at how much I've learned in the last several days. This course is definitely something I should have taken a long time ago. For anyone considering taking this class, I highly recommend taking it from Wilderness Medicine Institute (WMI). Their teaching format, style, and organization are incredible with lots of hands-on, realistic scenarios to deal with throughout the class.
. . . and it's so much more fun than work!
