SEARHC EMS offers course in Sitka

The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium Emergency Medical Services department is offering a Wilderness First Responder course that takes place March 4-11 at the SEARHC Community Health Services building in Sitka.

The course includes a national certification through Wilderness Medical Associates that lasts for three years. The courses are useful for anybody who spends a great deal of time in the Alaska outdoors. Some emergency medical services units, guide services and search and rescue squads require the Wilderness First Responder course for employees or volunteers, and some groups have been known to pick up all or part of the tuition for their students.

The Wilderness First Responder course takes place over 64 hours in eight days. Classes are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., with an hour for lunch, and take place in the first-floor conference room of the SEARHC Community Health Services building. No prior experience is required.

Cost is $375, which includes all books and materials. The registration deadline is 4 p.m. on Feb. 16, and classes are open to all Southeast Alaska adult residents. Students should bring clothing suitable for wearing while working outside, but medical equipment will be supplied.
