Wilderness 911 training North Carolina being offered by the National Outdoor Leadership School's Wilderness Medical Institute

When accidents or a medical emergency occurs in the wilderness, being cool and collected and having proper emergency medical training can mean the difference between life and death.

So far more than 8,000 students in about 350 courses have been trained by the renowned National Outdoor Leadership School's Wilderness Medical Institute. They are taught not only how to lower their risk for accident in the backcountry, but how to perform emergency triage and determine the course of action during a medical emergency, field dressing and cleansing of wounds, caring for sprains and broken bones by making splints with available natural materials.

You don't have to go all the way to Wyoming to receive this valuable training from the NOLS, you can go to Landmark Learning based in Cullowhee North Carolina who has been offering this valuable backcountry emergency training for more than 10 years now and now that they are teaming up with NOLS for this win win opportunity for lovers of the great outdoors.
