Stan and Hamish recently completed a week long Wilderness First Responder course in Leavenworth WA. The week long course was hosted by Lucca, Nick and Rocco from Rescue Specialists though Wilderness Medical Associates. This course is a requirement for ALL Water By Nature trip leaders to have, taking into account the settings and countries we take people rafting and kayaking in. In addition to being an in depth 70 hour course, the curriculum bases a great deal of the course around practical drills and rescue scenarios.
Water By Nature plan on running two Wilderness First Responder courses on the Zambezi River in September 2010. The week long courses are perfect for anyone with an interest in Wilderness Medicine. The course will be run by Rescue Specialists through Wilderness Medical Associates.
