WFR is Back at Miller’s Landing!

Miller’s Landing is offering a Wilderness First Responder Class to help educate and serve our community through affordable and in-depth wilderness medical classes.

This 10-day course is intensive and covers principles of preventing and treating wilderness injuries; ideal for those that spend time recreating, working, or living in remote settings.

Students will be certified through The National Association For Search and Rescue (NASAR) by a medical professional who represents a wide range of intersectionalities and is ready to teach you valuable leadership, decision making and communication skills.  Read more about the instructor below. They are dually skilled outdoor educators and medical professionals with years of experience working complex rescues and guiding groups in remote, and dynamic environments.
