Wilderness First Aid -- CANCELED

The 18-hour Wilderness First Aid course is sponsored by the Chemeketan Climbing Section and is open to anyone. The class will run from 8 am to 7 pm on Saturday, October 24th and 8 am to 5 pm on Sunday, October 25th 2020 at Silver Falls State Park.  The course training certificate (good for 2 years) is issued by the Emergency Care and Safety Institute in association with the American College of Emergency Physicians.

The course will cover first aid skills and decision-making using realistic emergency medical scenarios as might be encountered on a climbing, hiking or backpacking trip in the Cascades.  This will be a fun, intense, hands-on course that includes simulated-terrifying outdoor scenarios in dark, cold, wet, chaotic conditions. Instructors are all club members with extensive medical and outdoor experience. 

Fee is $65 for Chemeketans and $100 all others.  For additional information or to register see
