I received MES Professional Development Funding to participate in a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Recertification course. This was a 3-day class held in Leavenworth Washington through the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS)’s Outdoor Medicine Institute. The course was held at the Wenatchee River Institute November 2-4, 2018. WFR certifications emphasize patient care in remote settings where definitive medical attention is hours or days away. A WFR is required for a variety of outdoor jobs, like climbing rangers, trail crew leaders, guides, camp directors, and more.
