Wilderness First Aid education in Jokkmokk
Everybody got a smart bandanna with a print that helps you remind what to do in an emergency situation.

The list of things that can happen out in the forests and mountains can be many, fractures, heart attack, diarrhea, hypothermia (cold injuries) etc.
WMI of NOLS (Wilderness Medicine Institute of National Outdoor Leadership School) provides educations for us who most of the time work where the nearest help from a rescue team is one hour or longer away.
Lena and Fredrik were our instructors this weekend. Both of them have many years of experience in guiding tours and expeditions around the world.
We were totally 16 students, most of us from Jokkmokk but also some from Gällivare.
We are very happy that several of our cooperation partners also have focus on safety and quality and joined this wilderness First Aid education.
Stina and I at Jokkmokkguiderna as well several of our cooperation partners are now prepared for the coming season with charged first aid kits and refreshed knowledge which we hopefully never have to us.
