Wilderness First Aid
Custom & Additional Courses
Finns West offers Wilderness First Aid courses ranging from one day to 7 days. Each course focuses on patient assessment, management of life threatening emergencies and common injuries and illnesses. The focus is on the management of these issues when emergency care will be delayed due to distance or the environment. Standard first aid courses are designed based on rapid 911 response and may not be appropriate for individuals operating in locations not easily accessed by 911 or where emergency care will be delayed. We utilize evidence based medicine and hands-on training scenarios to better educate and prepare our participants for emergencies in the field. By combining our medical expertise with our guiding profession we are able to identify and create medical scenarios most likely encountered by folks who work and play in the environments associated with fly fishing.
