Wilderness First Aid
April 22-23, 10am-6 pm
Camp Peet, Conneaut, OH 44030
We are excited to announce that the Trillium Center is partnering with Ashtabula Metro Parks to expand our educational programs! The first class is Wilderness First Aid. Details below.
Why wilderness first aid vs. a regular first aid class? Here are a few reasons why wilderness first aid is a good idea.
- The wilderness approach is more adaptable to rural areas and disaster situations where resources may be scarce or far away.
- Wilderness protocols are easy to integrate with natural healing and herbal first aid.
- The wilderness training is challenging and stimulating.
- Much of the training is outside using realistic scenarios to help you feel more prepared.
- The wilderness first aid kit list is more comprehensive than the average first aid kit list.
- Class size is small to ensure that each student gets attention during the training and scenarios.
There will be two other instructors to ensure you are getting the training you need. Some of the things you will learn:
- Steps to take to prevent common outdoor injuries and illnesses.
- A comprehensive assessment to quickly identify minor injuries and illnesses vs. serious emergencies.
- Wilderness first aid treatment protocols for common injuries and illnesses, including emergencies that are specific to our region.
- When and how to activate emergency services.
- An introduction to herbal first aid will be included Saturday night.
