Why Enroll in MEDIC SOLO Disaster + Travel + Wilderness First Aid?

"Be Prepared"

 

     Mired in an urban disaster zone, rural living or car crash far from hospital, remote travel, or natural area miles from an access point accidents and terrorism happen, and all-too-often members of a group are not capable of dealing with the emergency.  Not only does this lead to improper care of the patient, but it also endangers the entire group.  Studies have shown that many recreational accidents are preventable, and that improper care of trauma can compound even the simplest of injuries.  Through our involvement in emergency medicine and rescue efforts, we at SOLO feel there is a need for training for all people - training which stresses preparedness and prevention; training which encompasses all phases of off-road emergencies; training which focuses on extended care issues in prolonged transport situations.  Very few first aid programs actually address the issues of providing emergency care in an urban disaster when 911 is overwhelmed or not reachable, or in a rural, wilderness, or extended care setting.  In this course, classroom instruction and Q&A are interwoven with practical work and problem-solving exercises.  Hands-on experience -- a most powerful learning tool -- during scenarios comprise ~50% of the class.  You come away with actual do-it-yourself care-giving confidence.
