and enjoying wilderness activities. Whether you’re a guide, skiier, kayaker, hiker or hunter, even the most

you’re with have the necessary medical knowledge? Our own Dan Langager shadowed a wilderness first responder

class to find out about wilderness first aid and the benefits of learning such skills.
