When I signed up for Wilderness First Aid I imagined we’d talk about blisters and washing cuts. Shana Tarter, the assistant director for the National Outdoor Leadership School’s Wilderness Medicine Institute agrees. “Anyone who takes themselves out of the environment where the ambulance is just a quick phone call away has a responsibility to take care of themselves,” Tarter said. All wilderness medicine classes include a hands-on component where you practice splinting arms, applying pressure dressings and closing gashes, and how to do it out in the elements.
Wilderness first aid is the lowest level of wilderness training by the institute, but it’s the most popular, Tarter said.
When the Wilderness Medicine Institute started in 1990 in Colorado, it consisted of three courses with 83 students. Wilderness First Aid (WFA): 16 hours teaches prevention and treatment of mild and moderate injuries and illnesses.
Wilderness First Responder (WFR): 80 hours aimed at people who lead trips or work in remote areas. Wilderness EMT (WEMT): 200 hours that combines EMT training with specific wilderness training allowing work in urban and backcountry settings.
The Wilderness Medicine Institute defines wilderness medicine as, among other things, a situation in which the patient is at least an hour from definitive medical care.
Since that describes many of the trails in Yellowstone Park and the surrounding ecosystem, it is not surprising that the Yellowstone Association has opted to provide several opportunities for students to learn the skills called for in a wilderness medical situation.
