~ 2/17-18 & 3/24-25CAP Wilderness Advanced First Aid class. Wilderness Advanced First Aid, or WAFA, is a 32 to 38 hour class that covers nearly all aspects of advanced first aid for both injuries and illnesses that occur more than 1 hour from rescue or higher level health services. During the course, participants will explore techniques for assessment, triage and response to injuries or illness involving all body systems under a wide variety of circumstances. Whether the rescuer is involved in a multi-victim incident or working with a solitary individual, the fundamental approach emphasizes observing, thinking, planning and personal safety. In addition to the didactic or book-learning material, participants will experience a wide variety of illness and injury scenarios that will provide hands-on opportunity to develop and practice the skills necessary to helping those who are victims. WAFA is especially designed for those situations where the victim(s) need to be cared for, stabilized and potentially transported to locations where more advanced health care can be made available.
