Medical Training Resources
Larimer County Search and Rescue does not offer medical
We recommend that people receive some kind of medical training, whether it be a Wilderness First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, or an EMT course. It is also important that CPR training be included.
It is imperative that a person keeps current in their medical training. Like any other discipline techniques change and evolve. A "medical technique" used ten years ago is not necessarily the "medical technique" to use today.
The following is a list of resources for medical training.
