Hello from Ireland.

We are looking forward to what this group can do and what information can be shared.

hey everyone.. just to catch up since i have been really busy for quite a while.

i hope this group continues to grow and that we can pull lots of info together to share.

I went to Remote Medical International for my EMT-B and wilderness type training. Later I acquired my EMT-I as well.

Hi guys,

New to the group, I am a wilderness survival instructor and my company teaches wilderness medicine, I live in NW Montana and it is a great to be part of this group.

Hey! It's great to see other Wilderness Medical Providers out there! I graduated from the WUMP program offered by the Wilderness Medical Institute in January. It was a great time! I went when the program was at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. I was given the opportunity to use my skills as the Camp Medic at the largest council-owned boy scout camp in the nation (it has about 10,000 acres) down in the mountains of West Texas this summer. Hopefully I'll be going back to help teach a Wilderness EMT class this spring! I definitely learned many valuable skills to enhance my EMS knowledge as a whole, and that my WEMT class has even enhanced my urban EMS skills. I would highly recommend any provider that has been thinking to take a Wilderness EMS class to do it.

Howdy to the group. I have been in EMS for over 30 years and graduated from the Wilderness EMT Upgrade program presented by Wilderness Medical Associates. I serve as a camp health officer at a local boy scout camp where I teach Wilderness First Aid. Look forward to the possibility of discussing issues in wilderness emergency care in this forum.

Just wanted to say hello from the island of Vinalhaven, ME. I graduated from the Solo School, Conway, NH, as a WEMT. I certainly want to recommend Solo's Wilderness Medicine Newsletter if anyone hasn't seen it yet.
