Like many across the country, we were relieved when 18-year-old Kendall Jack was rescued after several days in Southern California’s Cleveland National Forest. http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/04/05/17614412-clinging-to-the-ledge-rescuers-recount-dramatic-rescue-in-california-forest?lite] While most hikers will never find themselves in a similar situation, expert wilderness first responders are an invaluable resource when things go wrong.
We are proud to offer education and training courses designed for everyone from medical professionals to outdoor enthusiasts. Using Colorado State Parks (Eldorado Canyon State Park) and open spaces as our classroom, students learn skills that give them the freedom to explore with confidence.
Whether you simply want to learn what to do if someone in your hiking group gets injured or are looking to update your wilderness medicine education, we can guide you to the right course, including several this summer.
Our next 5-day Wilderness First Responder Course is July 8 – 12 in Eldorado Canyon State Park, a 10 minute drive from Boulder Colorado and 35 minute drive from Denver Colorado. http://www.coloradowildernessridesandguides.com/education-training/
