Wilderness First Aid is a two-day introduction to general medical concepts and basic life support skills. It is designed for people who love outdoor activities, and are wondering what to do if we, or our fellow runners, hikers, backpackers, cyclists, kayakers or skiers, have an accident or medical problem out on the trail or river.

Last year this course was taken by a group of Cayuga Trails Club hikers, trail adopters, hike leaders, as well as Boy Scout leaders and FLT sawyers. It was an incredible opportunity to learn how to assess injuries and illnesses out in the field, and to stabilize, treat, and make decisions about how best to get the patient back for further medical care.
