What is the purpose of this ? To provide an opportunity for folks who enjoy the outdoors to work and learn alongside the public service members who may have to rescue them in the event of an emergency. The goal of for all that attend to exploit each others strong suits and areas of expertise and experience to better each of us ! We will work in teams to achieve goals and effectively rescue a live patient throughout a series of difficult challenges in an austere environment.
As individuals we are all weak or deficient somewhere but as a group we are ridiculously strong. Let’s break bread together and explore nature and medicine in a positive learning environment with the goal of being a better member of society capable of being our sister and brothers keeper.
