The City of Bainbridge Island is offering a highly subsidized Wilderness First Responder certification training to build a foundation of citizens with medical skills. This will help the community in the event of a disaster when traditional medical resources may be significantly delayed or unavailable.
The training is open to residents of Bainbridge Island, ages 18+, who are willing to volunteer to work at the hubs in the event of a disaster.
The Hybrid Wilderness First Responder (H-WFR) course combines 20-30 hours of online coursework with five days of onsite training to provide intermediate medical skills to individuals working or playing in a remote or wilderness setting. Through a hands-on and scenario-based approach, this course offers the skills and confidence needed to provide medical care when evacuation is hours or days away.
