Safety Quiz: Wilderness First Aid
Wilderness first aid, or WFA, refers to the prevention, assessment and treatment of an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available.
In other words, if you’re in the middle of nowhere (technically, more than an hour away from advanced care), you need to be familiar with WFA. It can have a dramatic effect on the outcome of emergencies, injuries and illnesses. In fact, it can mean the difference between life and death.
