Wilderness and Remote First Aid

 

 

This course teaches advanced skills to be used in emergencies when help from professional first responders may be far away or delayed due to disasters. People who enjoy outdoor sports such as rock climbing, camping, boating, hunting, off roading, hiking or simply live in rural areas will benefit from this training. This course goes far beyond what youmay know as "first aid".

While it contains substantial medical information and teaches skills required formedical emergencies in the wild, the deeper purpose

is to train participants to manage acute situations. Emergencies, big or small, may be charged with emotion and confusion. Even minor chaos increases the risk of injury to rescuers and bystanders, as well as the risk of inadequate care for the patient.

 

Emergencies most often call for a leader to be directive, up to and after the scene is safe and the patient is stabilized. You very well may find this one of the most valuable programs you ever completed. Based on the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, this course aligns with OSHA’s Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs.

Advanced Lifesaving Solutions was created by Cecil and Rich promoting their desire for safety training in the community. Combining their passion for adventure with an emphasis on safety they created  Waterdogs Scuba and Safety LLC. Advanced Lifesaving Solutions is a division of their brain child and has been in action since 2012. They both served many tours in combat where applying their lifesaving skills was put to a test. They bring that knowledge to life by preparing others to deal with situations they might face on any given day.

One incident (closer to home) that happend to Cecil "In 1983 my six week old daughter stop breathing and for thirty minutes I had to provide cpr for her until EMS could arrive. If I had not been trained, the results would have been different. That incident has been a driving force in the developement of our company. I have maintained my certifications ever since as well as being an instructor for almost 15 years".
