Wilderness First Responder is the industry standard for wilderness medical training and is designed specifically to provide you with the tools to make critical emergency care and evacuation decisions in remote locations. Course topics include, but are not limited to trauma, wound management, realigning fractures and dislocations, improvised splinting techniques; environmental: allergies, hypo & hyperthermia; medical: gastrointestinal, infections, cardiac and respiratory conditions, patient monitoring and long-term management and care. The course is taught in a hands-on manner with an emphasis being placed on planning, prevention, and decision-making. Please contact the Outdoor Program if you would like more information. 208-426-1946

Current EMTs can also register for our WEMT module to upgrade their urban EMT to a Wilderness EMT (WEMT); while the practical session is the same for both WFRs and WEMTs, the WEMT website and tests contain more detailed anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology and WEMTs are held to a higher level of mastery during the practical session.
