WFR, wilderness first responder

Get Trained to Support People in the Outdoors this March!

Last December, we hosted a Wilderness First Responder Training for a group of outdoor professionals and enthusiasts. Due to the popularity of the program as well as its vital importance in the Catskill Mountain area, Frost Valley is adding another course to our calendar for March 10-16, 2018, which is in addition to the regularly scheduled course on June 4-10, 2018.

The Wilderness First Responder program is the ideal emergency medical training for leaders in remote areas. Outdoor educators, wilderness guides, members of the military, professional search and rescue teams, field researchers, and individuals involved in disaster relief will gain valuable skills from this comprehensive and practical curriculum. The course includes the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments for days and weeks if necessary.

Included in the course fee are all meals, lodging, and in-depth instruction. Participants who successfully pass the course will leave with a valuable Wilderness First Responder certification, allowing them to work in the professional / volunteer outdoor guide and rescue field for a range of opportunities. The course takes place at Frost Valley’s East Valley Ranch location.

To register for either the March or the June course, please call (845) 985-2291 ext.240 or email
