Could you survive an outdoor emergency? If you have had no previous training or have any emergency tools, you only have a 50-50 chance of surviving. If you take this class you will have a better than 50-50 chance. After an initial evaluation of your own survival skills, you will be instructed on a specific skill and then practice during class. You will learn the basic three skills to help you survive an outdoor emergency.

1. How to build a fire under almost any condition.
2. How to build an emergency shelter is less than 5 minutes
3. How to signal for help

The class includes a basic survival kit that students will use during class

What is WFA? “Wilderness first aid” is a generic term that commonly refers to any training course that covers the prevention and treatment of injuries and illnesses that one may encounter in a remote environment. Many providers offer wilderness first aid courses, but not all courses are created equal—they vary in content, duration, accreditation, and other factors.

The WFA course is a 16-hour certification suitable for participants ages 14 and older. The curriculum includes not only classroom instruction but also a practical hands-on application in the form of practice scenarios. More important, it emphasizes that the safety of everyone involved is paramount, and it teaches participants how to gain control of an urgent situation so that resources (people, supplies, etc.) can be utilized appropriately.

Prerequisites. Being at least 14 years old and completing a CPR and AED certification course led by a nationally recognized provider are the only prerequisites. Having basic first-aid training is very helpful but it is not a prerequisite.
