Wilderness first aid (WFA) is a course for everyone planning a remote high adventure ranging from lay responders to medical professionals. It focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment for an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available. This is defined as being an hour or more away from advanced care.
Over the weekend, Campaign It Forward trained nine leaders from LD Potomac. The training included class room style learning as well as scenarios using fake blood, plastic body parts, and bad acting. Congratulations the the following leaders for their successful completion of the Wilderness First Aid class: Tam Tran, Hanson Nguyen, Peter Le, Tran-Chau Le, Tuan Ho, Thinh Luu, Clara Le, Jackie Dang, Nhi Vo.
