For any activity where EMS is more than 30 minutes away, a First Aider is required. This 16-hour course provides individuals a foundation of first aid principles and skills to be able to respond to emergencies and give care in areas that do not have immediate emergency medical services (EMS) response. This includes wilderness and remote environments, including urban disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes. Prerequisite: current adult CPR/AED certification.
