This three-day, 24 hour program prepares first responders (law enforcement, fire fighters, EMS personnel, etc.) and local citizens to identify and respond to common first aid, emergency, and serious medical situations in a disaster, as well as other austere environments. Emphasis is on preparation, preventions, assessment, and self-treatment of illness and/or injury. Instruction will include a combination of lecture, discussion, hands on practice, and scenarios. Participants, upon completion of the course and a passing grade on the final, are awarded a certificate of completion in Disaster Response Advanced First Aid.
