Wilderness First Aid – Day 2

I’ve completed the Wilderness and Remote First Aid training and am now certified.  Some other topics covered were dislocated joints, fractures (both open and closed), burns, allergic reactions, drowning, lightning, heat, cold, and altitude related illnesses.

I still need to take the basic first aid course with CPR and automatic defibrillator (AED) use, and I’ll be doing that in about 2 weeks.  I still won’t exactly be an EMT but am definitely better prepared now.
