    The cost for the course is as follows:

    Bumped for the holiday weekend to point out this one idea.

    With the water from Hurricane Harvey still receding there have been many stories of people being injurred or killed. Reports on the news showed that 911 centers were receiving greater than 1,000 calls/hour in Houston. During a natural disaster like this, you don't need to be in "the wilderness" to benefit from learning about handling injury or illness in a delayed care setting. This training is geared toward providing care any time access to EMS is greater than 30 minutes.

    The other main concept that is taught in this class is assessing scene safety before providing care. I just read a story yesterday of two men who were killed snd three others burned by a downed electrical wire while they were out rescuing stranded people. Learn to properly assess a situation before entering so that you don't become the next victim.

    I can't stress the value of taking this class enough.

    For those who are coming in from out of town, I am directing anyone who needs lodging for this class to the Comfort Inn Mt. Pocono. The manager, Anthony, agree to reduce room rates for students who mention that they are taking this WRFA class with Sandcut Outdoors.

    The address is 3189 Rt. 940, Mt. Pocono, PA 18344. The phone number there is (570)839-9282
