Wilderness First Aid or Wilderness First Responder, and what is it?

Wilderness Emergency Care is not so much learning to provide medical care in the “wilderness”, but rather in times where access to 911 or the Healthcare System is delayed or obstructed. This could be because your in the back-country hours or days from civilization, in a disaster area, war or conflict zone, or travelling in a 3rd world country. You learn how to care for the ill and injured until access to definitive healthcare is obtained. It can also be applied to urban setting as it covers basic aid and then much more on tip of that.
