Hi all! There is a new association in California representing EMS professionals. Even if you are not an EMD, EMR, EMT, AEMT or Paramedic in California, please "Like" this page to support us!  CAAEMT Facebook Page

Steven--I am interested in your comments about the BSA requirements. I teach a WFA course in my council and work with the Venturing program in high adventure trips. The talk of a WFA advancement requirement had not reached the professionals here in our council. Please update us on anything you hear. Thanks!

Just found out something that could effect all of us in Wilderness Medicine and training. Not of this is substantiated yet but worth discussing. First, all of the major certifying organizations are going to work around a standard curriculum. This is driven by the Boy Scouts and their requirement for Wilderness First Aid training for high adventure trips to New Mexico.

Second, the Boy Scouts are changing their advancement requirements to mandate a 16 hour Wilderness First Aid course for all youth that wish to attain the rank of Star. This is to go into effect in 2010 from what I am hearing. Should vastly increase the demand for this course.

I read the comments on equine use in SAR and have a lifetime of experience. As a former rodeo, ranch hand, horse trainer, and current Medic, I have enjoyed horses and used them in numerous scenerios. I have packed a mobile ambulance into movie sets where vehicles weren't allowed, and been involved in multi operational period rescue situations. All using pack horses. I say pack horses because one rider one horse may move you around but the equipment that you take on your horse is limited and when you encounter a rescue/extrication situation one horse will be inadaquate. The badlands and the Black Hills of South Dakota are my playground and they taught me the uses and limitations of horses in SAR situations.
