Chaos in Emergency First Aid

Video from my recent Wilderness First Responder course




Hey gang. I'm finally back on the blog train after three weeks of field time, guiding hikes in Zion and taking an intense 80-hour Wilderness First Responder course taught by the Wilderness Medicine Institute at the Boulder Outdoor Survival School in Boulder, Utah.

Both Zion and the "Woofer" course were grand, but together they formed a long string of 16-hour days, hence my skimpy blogging.

The Woofer seminar was nine days of full-tilt instruction - and very useful, even for an ex-EMT like myself who went into it with a smugly casual attitude. Above you'll see footage from one short field exercise that required traction splinting a femur and backboarding two patients. We'll post more First Aid videos in the future....and I'll try to stay more current on the dispatches from here forward. Stay tuned. --Steve Howe

I admire the valuable information you offer in your article. First Aid is the temporary help given to an injured or a sick person before professional medical treatment can be provided. This timely assistance, comprising of simple medical techniques, is most critical to the victims and is, often, life saving. This is really informative post. Thanks for sharing.

Emergency preparedness seems so overwhelming too. There’s all that water you need to stock up on, and that food, and first aid stuff, and need to find a place to put it all. But first you need to figure out what all you need to have together, which means you need to find a list or something, and read up on procedures, because if you’re going to do it you might as well get all the gadgets you could possibly need right.
