[ARCHIVED] Stay Safe on the Trail: Learn Wilderness First Aid

Issaquah is nicknamed Trailhead City.

With our Wilderness First Aid course, you can learn how to stay safe while you’re exploring the Issaquah Alps and beyond.

The course, presented by our Parks & Recreation Department and Evergreen Wilderness LLC, combines a classroom lecture with hands-on scenarios to teach you the skills needed when help from a professional responder is not quickly available.

At the end of this training, you will have the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in any outdoor emergency or injury.

The course, for participants age 12 to adult, is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. March 28-29, 2015, at the Issaquah Community Center, 301 Rainier Blvd. S. Register online or call 425-837-3300.

Completion of the course results in a two-year wilderness first aid certification, and satisfies Boy Scouts of America curriculum requirements.
