Wilderness First Responder Course: Aug. 12-20, 2022

If you spend a lot of time outdoors, knowing how to react and adapt to unpredictable situations is a must.
We are excited to announce that John Brown University is hosting a Sierra Rescue International Wilderness First Responder Course, taught by Tom Burroughs - NREMT/WEMT of Ozark Safety and Rescue Educators.

When: Aug. 12-20, 2022
Where: Steel Creek, Buffalo River National Park (near Jasper Arkansas)
Cost: $675.00

What IS "Wilderness First Responder"?
Taught by medical professionals with decades of professional backcountry medical and rescue experience, the WFR is an intensive 80 hour program that will challenge you both physically and mentally.
This 9 day course will cover a wide range of practical wilderness medical scenarios, and the skills to manage complex medical challenges in the backcountry.
The focus is on more than just trauma; it covers long-term management of sickness and serious health problems when quick evacuation and outside help is not an option.

Time is split between hands-on medical training, lecture, discussion and both day and night field scenarios which all blend together into a learning experience that has no equal. Intensive hands-on training and the development of solid "critical judgment" is the foundation for the program.
The SRI Wilderness First Responder certification is recognized nationwide, and will give you skills for life. Successful completion of this course results in the nationally recognized Wilderness First Responder certification from Sierra Rescue International.

• Certification period is for THREE years
• Course includes CPR/AED certification
• Functions as an EMT-Wilderness upgrade for current EMTs and Paramedics.

This WFR/WEMT course will be held at the Steel Creek Research and Education Center in the Buffalo River National Park and includes camping at the center. This amazing location is in the heart of the National Park, next to the Buffalo River. Multiple class sessions will be held in the park areas surrounding the center, giving you an unparalleled learning experience.
