Why Enroll in MEDIC SOLO Disaster + Travel + Wilderness First Aid?

Casual Hiker, Actual Story:

 

 

Beautiful October day at very popular Old Rag Mountain.

  • Just ~3 miles in, expecting to finish hike mid/late afternoon while the sun is still up.
  • Hiker injures knee, can't walk out.
  • Rescue request is called in at 2:30pm.
  • Patient reaches ambulance at trail head at 12:30 AM, 10 hours after rescue is called.
    • Temperature drops to 34 degrees,
    • hiker and her group were not planning to be out after dark,
    • everyone is hungry and cold, perhaps thirsty too and without light
    • the injured patient can't exercise to warm up ...

 

 

If you came across this hiker needing help ...

... would you know how to treat her injury such that the potential for long term permanent damage is minimized, and care for her for 10+ hours, while also caring for yourself and the rest of the group which had prepared for only a day hike, likely without food, enough water, warm clothing, sources of light, and shelter?
