First Aid Scenarios on Campus This Weekend

Date: 12:00am PST November 17, 2018 - November 18, 2018 Location: Templeton Campus Center

Templeton Campus Center

College Outdoors is hosting a Wilderness First Responder Recertification class for 30 people, from Saturday, Nov. 18th through Sunday, Nov. 19th near Gregg Pavilion and on various parts of campus.

These national certification courses, taught by instructors from NOLS Wilderness Medicine, provide our LC students and others from the outside community with excellent skills for responding to medical emergencies.

This weekend we will be doing first aid simulations near Templeton and on various parts of campus. In these simulations, some “victims” may be made up with stage blood, and bandages, and may be carried out on a stretcher.

You may not notice the class at all, but in case you do:

We will strive to keep simulations away from office buildings and visitors, but if you do encounter such a scenario, please do not be alarmed. We will have “First Aid Simulation in Progress” signs posted in the area of any simulations.

If you have questions about the Wilderness First Responder course, please contact College Outdoors at 503-768-7116.

Thank you.
