Wilderness First Aid (WFA)

Wilderness First Aid training, either 8-hour or 16-hour, is recommended for any researchers travelling to areas greater than 1 hour from emergency medical care. The 8-hour course is suitable for most researchers and includes CPR/AED certification. If your work is very remote, a 16-hour class may be more suitable.

We encourage participants to either share a draft Field Safety Plan for feedback, or schedule a brief consultation to collaborate on a plan if you don't have one already. To inquire about Wilderness First Aid or other training, or for help with your Field Safety Plan, email Heather at fieldsafety@ucdavis.edu or fill out the Field Safety Training Information Request.
