This 5-day training focuses on preparing students to work safely and confidently, both during and after an emergency or natural disaster. This 40-hour course will cover emergency first aid techniques, teamwork and leadership for keeping team members safe, working with radio and communications during a disaster, and the equipment and gear needed for disaster preparedness.

The course is open to anyone and there is no prerequisite. This is an essential course for those wanting to assist with their local community disaster outreach efforts, an herbal medic team or long-term community involvement in rebuilding efforts. The training week also includes a 16-hour wilderness first aid certification, issued by ECSI, that is a ‘must have’ for camp counselors, scout leaders, campers, travelers and outdoor enthusiasts.
