Freestone First Aid
6 hour class
8 hour class with AHA Adult CPR
*additional AHA courses available as add-on's depending on participants' needs
The Freestone First Aid course was designed specifically for fly fishing outfitters and guides as well as for individuals who want a little more confidence in their first aid skills. This is our most popular course for guides and individuals taking day trips or who may have access to reasonable 911 response.
We created this course in response to the standard on 1 day first aid courses that may not offer the appropriate training for individuals working in environments where emergency response is delayed and where knowledge of environmental emergencies, common medical issues and patient protection / packaging are paramount.
The core of the Freestone First Aid course is first aid in the wilderness / remote environment focusing on Quick Patient Assessment; Life Threats, Common Medical Emergencies, Environmental Emergencies, Critical Thinking Skills and Hands on Skills.
