Wilderness First Aid offered in Henderson County

Yesterday I mentioned that the Asheville-Mountain Area Chapter of the American Red Cross is offering Wilderness First Aid training later this month.

I just found out through the Carolina Mountain Club that the American Red Cross of Henderson County will also be offering a Wilderness First Aid class next week, from August 7 through August 9. The class will be Friday night, all day Saturday and half a day on Sunday.

The class covers assessment and urgent first aid techniques, but not in-depth CPR.

You can sign up online at or call the office with a credit card at 693-5605. The organization would like for people to sign up as soon as possible so that they will know that they will have a viable class (they need at least 6-8 people to make the class work logistically). Please see the flyer (PDF) with all the details or you can contact: Cindy McJunkin.

For a limited time, is offering an opportunity to receive a FREE National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass. Go to Amazon’s new Outdoor Recreation Store for more details.
