Winter Workshop Series: Wilderness First Aid
Outdoor Chattanooga's Winter Workshop Series is a series of classroom-based, outdoor education and skill building workshops that are free and open to the public. All ages are welcome and no reservations or experience are required to attend.
We start the series with a 2-part introduction to Wilderness First Aid on January 18th and 25th. (**Non-certification course**) Wilderness first aid training prepares you for how to handle emergencies in the woods until you can get to definitive care. **These workshops are not for certification, but do offer insightful discussions for training and practice purposes.
Jan. 18 - Part 1: Participants will gain a better understanding on how to assess, treat, and contain emergencies related to soft tissue injury, fractures, trauma and building splints.
Jan. 25 - Part 2: will cover emergencies related to environmental disasters, exposure, survival hacks, and hypothermia. Come for one workshop or both.
Additional Winter Workshops occur Thursdays, 6:00-7:30 p.m., Feb. 1st through March 1st at Outdoor Chattanooga, 200 River St. in Coolidge Park. Visit our website or call 423.643.6888 to learn more.
