Shelter In Place First Aid

Shelter In Place First Aid

Register Now The Shelter In Place First Aid course is designed to assist families and friends sheltering in place or caught in disaster to assess and care for medical problems and injury with guidelines for when to seek advanced medical care.  In 2002, Landmark Learning and CORE Expeditions created the Ecuadorian Amazon and Andes Relief Medic Program, initially named Mission Medic. We had traveled extensively whitewater kayaking, teaching wilderness medicine and river rescue skills to local guides. We wanted to do more for the indigenous communities of Ecuador, connecting our wilderness medicine students to medical brigades supported by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Health. From 2005-2010, two week clinical trips were made into the Andes and the Amazon of Ecuador.  The Ecuadorian Relief Medic expeditions continue through Mingai of Ecuador. To learn more about the the Ecuadorian Relief Medic program visit www.mingai.org In 2010, Landmark Learning began moving our energy from overseas back to US soil. We interviewed medical brigades leaving for Haiti, as well as mission and building teams visiting parts of Boliva and Guatemala. We discovered that many of these teams were traveling with good intentions but a lack of training to care for themselves or assist medical professionals in medical triage and patient assessment. We created the Community Relief Medic Program, a two day version of the Relief Medic program for training groups in the United States.  Now in 2019, the Shelter In Place First Aid course is an online, four-hour version of Community Relief Medic. This course is  designed to assist families and friends sheltering in place or caught in disaster to assess and care for medical problems and injury with guidelines for when to seek advanced medical care. This course does not provide certification, cognitive testing or practical skills…
