Wilderness First Responder
Loyola's Department of Recreation and Wellness will be hosting an 8-day Wilderness First Responder Training.
The class is a medical training for leaders in remote areas including outdoor educators, guides, military, professional search and rescue teams, researchers, and those involved in disaster relief.
The curriculum is comprehensive and practical. It includes the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments for days and weeks if necessary.
