PSA 232: Wilderness EMT

3 credits

Wilderness medicine differs significantly from conventional EMS courses and other programs that are oriented towards the normal urban environment. Rural ambulance crews and wilderness rescue teams face challenges that are unknown to the inner city provider. In this course we address the special problems associated with prolonged patient care (>2 hours), severe environments, and improvised equipment. This is the definitive medical course for rural EMS providers, USAR, FEMA and wilderness rescue team members. All students who successfully complete the WFR course will receive a WFR certification card, an Anaphylaxis certification card and a BLS-CPR certification card from Wilderness Medical Associates*. These certifications remain valid for three years. Offered even Falls.

Prerequisite(s): Current EMT license.
Co-requisite(s): None.
