Wilderness first aid course offered at NIC

OUTDOORS -- A two-day Wilderness First Aid course is being offered this weekend, Oct. 5-6, by North Idaho College Outdoor Pursuits.

The course is intended for the outdoor enthusiast who wants more than an urban first aid course provides.

The emphasis of the class is on recognizing and treating life-threatening traumatic and medical emergencies, common wilderness injuries, bandaging and splinting, and environmental injuries. American Heart Association CPR is included in the curriculum.

Register online for the clinics at www.nic.edu/wft.

Information: (208) 769-7809.
