UNITY — Unity College will offer an intensive back-country medical training course, Wilderness First Responder, to help students deal with medical emergencies that happen miles from help. The course will be held May 19-27 and is recommended for outdoor professionals and those who spend much time in remote areas.
Graduates will receive WFR certification by Wilderness Medical Associates, valid for three years, and BLS level CPR and anaphylaxis certification.
Wilderness medicine is different from traditional first aid because of the lengthy transport times that require patient care in the field, severe environments in which emergencies occur, and the need for improvising equipment.
