Saturday September 7th from 8:30am-8pm and Sunday the 8th from 8am-5pm
This two-day course immerses participants in basic wilderness medicine procedures, preparing individuals to take immediate action when an outdoor activity doesn’t go as planned and 911 responders are hours away. Time is split between interactive classroom sessions and hands-on field scenarios to prepare participants and help them quickly develop basic back country medical care skills. The course focus is on patient assessment, stabilization and emergency treatment of issues such as hypothermia and snakebites, as well as understanding of when and how to attempt evacuation. Participants will emerge capable of calmly responding to a wide variety of emergency situations.
All program supplies and textbooks (which become property of the participants) are provided by Ozark Safety and Rescue Educators (OSRE) as part of the program cost as well as all on-site meals. On-site lodging options are also available. Successful completion of the entire program will result in a two year nationally recognized certification. To register visit: https://www.onsc.us/events
