Why Take Wilderness First Aid Courses

If you've just been doing short day hikes and fishing trips, then you may have never thought of the need for wilderness first aid courses. After all, you have a smartphone that can call for help if you really needed it right? Well, maybe, maybe not. Let's take a look at some of the reasons why you stand to benefit from wilderness first aid courses starting with the most obvious one...

Why Take Wilderness First Aid Courses

  • Learn how to quickly respond in an emergency. This is the most obvious reason to learn wilderness first aid as you really never can anticipate an emergency. Maybe you trip and fall and in doing so drop your phone in a puddle or dash it on a rock. Maybe your friend has an allergic reaction while you're out of cell phone service, or you're in a place that isn't accessible easily by roads and ranger. Learning wilderness first aid will help you quickly assess a situation and provide critical aid.

  • Learn more skills and enjoy self-sufficiency. Improving one's skills and learning to be more self-sufficiency are both great things. Wilderness first aid courses are something that will help you learn how to be more self-sufficient on your camping trips and will improve your overall backpacking skills.

  • Boost your confidence. Better confidence in yourself and your ability to take on hiking trips and overnight backpacking events will naturally grow the more you hone key skills like wilderness first aid.
