GeocacheAlaska! Basic First Aid EduVent
Get ready to hit the Geocaching trails and be prepared for those little injuries that may happen while out in the wilderness. This EduVent will cover the very basics of preparing for and treating minor injuries through basic first aid methods that are appropriate for use in wilderness settings. Our presenter is long-time geocacher SSO JOAT from Soldotna, who is a Paramedic with nearly 3 decades of experience in Alaska. This course will be a rapid review of the assessment and management of several common injuries that may happen during typical off-the-road geocaching adventures. We'll talk about how to treat these injuries until you can get out of the wilderness and back to regular medical care. Perfect for new as well as seasoned cachers to enhance your geocaching experience this summer. Also perfect for those who get queasy at the sight of blood, because JOAT breaks things down into plain and simple terms without any ugly photos of blood and gore.
