If your camping group, wheeling buddies, or hiking folks suffered injury?
If the car in front of you slammed headon into an oncoming vehicle?
If the guy next to you at dinner had a stroke, heart attack, asthma attack or started choking?
Luke 10: 21-35, what if you found the traveler beaten on the roadside?
Could you help?
Food for thought. http://www.outdoorsocial.com/wfa.htm
I took the WFA class offered by Mr Rosefsky last year; I very highly recommend it. We had a very diverse group, from civilians to SAR personel, Scouts and a Scout leader, a wilderness instructor, an emt, a DoD employed boat captain who was "in communications", etc. It was about 20 and worked very well for both class instruction, outdoor scenario simulation, and class presentation.
Matt presents things in a very understandable fashion, and is very thorough. This was not a boring sit and talk class, it was interactive, educational, and actually fun. A lot of fun. I came out of it much better prepared than any other similar class I have ever taken, and cannot say enough how much I recommend not only at least a WFA and CPR certification (seperate things), but that you get it from Matt.
He is a certified SOLO instructor for WFA, WFR, and AHA CPR. He is currently training as a Geo Medic, the pinnacle of SOLO wilderness medicine, and currently is certified a W-EMT.
And no, I don't get kick backs, he really is THAT good at his job. Fwiw, I am soon to enroll in this years WFR class in Spruce Knob taught by Matt. But you shouldn't, not until I reserve a spot first! Lol.
Feel free to PM me with any questions if you like - I will answer them or get an answer for ya.
Safe trailing, Virginia.
