CDFW Offers Wilderness First Aid Clinic in Yolo County

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Advanced Hunter Education Program will offer a wilderness first aid clinic on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015 at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area in Davis.

Participants from beginner to advanced are welcome to attend. Taught by a veteran paramedic and wilderness first aid instructor, this clinic will include hands-on training in the treatment of cuts, broken bones, burns and gunshot wounds, as well as addressing first aid kits and basic survival equipment.

The goal of the clinic is to provide outdoor enthusiasts and individuals hunting in remote locations with the knowledge, skills and ability to make sound decisions in wilderness emergency situations.

The cost is $45 for adults (there is no cost for youths age 17 and under). The clinic hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Space is limited, so please register early. To register or for more information, please visit www.dfg.ca.gov/huntered/advanced/ or contact Lt. Alan Gregory at (209) 274-9923.
