SUMMER CAMP CERTIFICATIONS

image

SAJE Vital Signs is a corporate member of the ONTARIO CAMPS ASSOCIATION. Each Camp determines what level of First Aid and CPR certification that their staff requires based on the distance between the Camp and the next level of care and/or the location of programs done off-site and we provide all the various certification options. For example, a Camp located within 20 minutes of a hospital would be required to have a person with at least a basic First Aid and CPR certification on duty when campers are present. If that same Camp takes an off-site camping trip to an area where the longest response time to that hospital falls between 20 to 60 minutes, the camping trip would then need a person with Second Level First Aid and CPR Training. Once the off-site trip is in a more remote area where distance to the next level of help is longer than 60 minutes, those leading the camp need the Wilderness First Aid Certification. SAJE Vital Signs offers the following specialized First Aid & CPR Certification Courses:

Course 5: Wilderness First Aid

The Wilderness First Aid Course was created by those who took trips in remote areas and found out that the regularly taught first aid courses did not train them for what could be expected in the forest or mountains they were visiting. And, therefore, a group of physicians from the Wilderness Medical Society, created a set of practice guidelines, providing the framework for Wilderness First Aid courses.

This course teaches you all that you need to know about the basics of packaging and transporting injured patients as well as managing life and limb threats in remote environments.
