COURSE PURPOSE The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Wilderness and Remote First Aid course is to provide individuals a foundation of first aid principles and skills to be able to respond to emergencies and give care in areas that do not have immediate emergency medical services (EMS) response, such as wilderness and remote environments, including urban disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes.
COURSE PREREQUISITES Current adult CPR/AED certification is a prerequisite for participation in the Wilderness and Remote First Aid course. Participants must also be 14 years of age on or before the last scheduled session of the course.

If you use a firearm to defend life, its probably because your loved one, a co-worker, or an innocent bystander was first the target. After you address the threat its time to start pre-hospital trauma care. Its imperative that you are trained and equipped to act.

In the wake of recent natural disasters in Kentucky and Illinois that claimed dozens of lives and thousands of homes and businesses, IRT would like to remind everyone of the importance of being prepared. Whether it’s preparing yourself or your team by certifying in First Aid/CPR/AED, or preparing your organization for the worst by developing a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan, IRT can help. Contact us for a consultation on how IRTs training suite can help prepare you for disaster.
Being prepared means having the mindset, knowledge, and tools to react to physical threats and medical emergencies. Mindset and knowledge come from training and are carried internally. Unfortunately, the tools need to be carried physically.
That’s why I have Gracie. Gracie is a three year old Bernese Mountain Dog who is extremely eager to help carry gear! Water, trauma kit, bag dispenser, she couldn’t be happier or feel more important then when she is carrying a pack. And I couldn’t be happier knowing I have essential equipment in case of an emergency.
If you have the mindset, but are looking for the training and tools to react to a physical threat or medical emergencies, contact IRT for opportunities.

According to the Committee on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC)
First Care Providers (FCP) are –
“Empowered and trained community members who can serve a critical role during the initial moments after complex and dynamic disasters. These FCPs often have immediate access to severely injured victims and can provide time-sensitive, life saving
interventions; the FCP is the first link in the trauma chain of survival.”
If you would like to become a person prepared for immediate response, register now to get certified as a First Care Provider in TECC.
IRT offers a specialized certification in TECC for First Responders with a duty to Act (Law Enforcement and Firefighters not trained as EMS) This course provides knowledge and training to deal with an active threat environment.
In the event of a mass casualty event, time is the enemy of the wounded. The more people prepared to step up and provide care, the better the chances are for survival. TECC is rapidly becoming the globally recognized standard for initial, pre-medical first aid in high risk scenarios. Whether you are a concerned citizen looking to be prepared, a CCW holder, hunter, or gun owner in general, knowing what to do in high risk first aid situations is your duty.
