In the wild, the First Responder is YOU!

Southeastern-CPR offers ASHI-certified Wilderness Emergency Care First Aid classes in corporate locations throughout Charleston, SC, and throughout the state.

Wilderness activities are popular throughout Charleston SC and the Lowcountry. From the forests to the lakes, the swamps to the marshes, people love to get away from civilization. Unfortunately, that also means getting away from prompt medical care in the time of an emergency.

In the Wilderness, Response Time is Critical

Nationwide, the average response time to a medical emergency in the wilderness can be 20% longer than one that occurs in town. Transport from the wilderness site to the hospital can take 30% longer. So it’s vital that someone out on the trail, in the marsh or on the lake receive proper Wilderness Emergency First Aid training. And Southeastern-CPR is here to help.

The American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) has authored a 16-hour wilderness first aid training course. Southeastern-CPR offers this course to people who are involved in serious wilderness activities, including park rangers, wilderness trip leaders and guides, hikers, backpackers and kayakers.

Wilderness First Aid training by Southeastern-CPR takes place both in the classroom and out in the field, in real-world Lowcountry wilderness locations such as Francis Marion Forest and others. Topics include:

  • Primary and Secondary Assessments
  • Head/Brain, Neck and Spinal Injuries
  • Heat-Related Emergencies
  • Hypothermia
  • Allergies and Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Bone and Joint Injuries
  • Wounds and Wound Infection
