    Wha-hoooooo! It's getting to be that time of year again. Time for our late winter WRFA class.

    Don't let the cold weather keep you on the couch. Make a New Year's resolution to finally learn how to use that first aid kid for more than ballast in your canoe!


    Outdoor recreation can provide the setting for once-in-a-lifetime experiences for many people. However, it also comes with its own set of vulnerabilities and exposures, especially when access to definitive medical care is hours or days away. As such, Sandcut Outdoors is offering another Wilderness and Remote First Aid class for American Red Cross certification. This class will teach you the skills that you would need to be able to appropriately respond to a medical emergency in a delayed care setting if one should occur on your next adventure or in your own back yard.

    This class is designed for giving care when access to EMS is greater than 30 minutes. The course will cover the fundamentals of wilderness medicine and will include a combination of lecture and hands-on, skills-based scenarios. Topics covered will include managing group dynamics during a medical emergency, evacuation considerations, patient assessment, controlling bleeding and wound care, bone and joint injuries, head/neck/spinal injuries, cold and heat emergencies, altitude illnesses, patient stabilization and movement, cardiac and respiratory illness, allergic and metabolic emergencies and much more.

    The WRFA class will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 9 and 10, 2019 from 9 am to 6 pm each day.

    An Adult CPR/AED class will be offered on Friday March 8, 2019 from 5 pm to 8:30 pm for those requiring the certification as a prerequisite for the WRFA class or for anyone requiring Adult CPR/AED certification.

    The cost for the course is as follows:

    Wilderness and Remote First Aid only - $180 (for those already holding an Adult CPR/AED certification

    WRFA + Adult CPR/AED* - $225 (both courses bundled for a substantial cost savings)

    Adult CPR/AED only - $90 (for those needing only CPR training)

    Class prerequisites:
    Must be at least 14 years old
    Must show proof of a current Adult CPR/AED certification *...

    This class will be held at The Nature Conservancy’s Hauser Nature Center, located at 1567 Long Pond Road, Long Pond, PA.

    To register for the course, send an email to

    For questions call Mike at 570)955-8391 or email the address above.

    Registration for this class will close on Sunday, February 24.

    Looking into this. I did it 2 years ago with Mike and it was fantastic and has come in useful. Great for building confidence!

    I'm both sorry and happy to say that this class is now full.

    However, due to the high demand for this class, I'm adding another the weekend of March 23-24. New post to come.
