We all prepare our vehicles for an overland trip. Are you prepared for a medical emergency in the backcountry?
Please join us for a Wilderness & Remote First Aid class to be held in Sacramento April 16th & 17th.
This is a fun and fast paced class with lots of scenarios and hands on learning. The class is 16 hours over 2 days. The WRFA is especially important to know while traveling for extended periods in the back country--either via foot, bicycle, motorcycle or car. Kristina herself is a highly seasoned wheeler and tailors her instructions to real world scenarios for wheelers, mountaineers and backpackers.
She works in partnership with the American Red Cross--is an authorized Instructor and Instructor Trainer and teaches CPR and Wilderness and Remote First Aid Training courses that will certify participants for 2 years with the American Red Cross.
If you'd like to sign up for the course, PM Kristina. Or contact her at kristinahall at mac.com
For those also interested in getting CPR certified, I know Kristina is probably going to do a separate class for that at a later date.
Here is the description of the course per the American Red Cross web site:
