alpineSAR Members Complete Wilderness First Aid Training

alpineSAR Secretary, Paul Whiting, “all wrapped up”

Last weekend 13 members completed a 4-day Wilderness First Aid course. After two days of classroom instruction, the course moved to Caringal Scout Camp near Erica for practical exercises with realistic scenarios in a bush setting, including a night-time search and rescue operation at Mushroom Rocks. This training will increase members’ competence to treat injured lost persons in remote situations. The course was funded in part by a grant from Dept of Social Security Volunteer Grant, receipt of which we gratefully acknowledge.
