What would you do if you were in the mountains with a loved one and he or she gets injured? How would you respond if you couldn't just call 911 for help? Well, if you are heading into the backcountry, you should at a minimum take a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course so that you can better deal with these situations.
And now, you can take a WFA at your local REI store. Read the press release announcing the new offering.
To see if the WFA is being offered at an REI location (or other location) near you, check out the course schedule and list of locations.
