The Sul Ross State University Campus Recreation department will host a five-day Wilderness First Responder certification course April 12-16.
Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is the ideal medical training for leaders in remote areas, including outdoor educators, guides, military, professional search and rescue teams, researchers, and those involved in disaster relief.
Emphasis is placed on risk management, prolonged care, advanced treatment, evacuations and leadership. This course is taught by professional instructors with significant patient care and back-country experience.
Certification is good for three years and is ideal for those operating in the Big Bend Region where access to emergency medical care is limited.
A pre-course textbook review is required. Registration closes March 10, and the course fee is $800.
