Students Become Wilderness First Responders

Posted by: NOLS on 10/16/09 8:12 AM

The third section for the Fall Semester in the Rockies (FSR) groups is happening at Three Peaks Ranch. The students of FSR 5 & 6 are just a couple of days away from finishing up their Wilderness First Responder course. The completion of their WFR comes at a perfect time for these students, as their next section will be a month of hiking in the canyon country of southern Utah.

The WFR not only allows students to respond confidently to illness or injury, the knowledge also helps them understand the need to prevent illness and injuries while traveling in the wilderness. Tomorrow night sees the students of FSR 5 & 6 out on their night rescue scenario.
