Contact: David Wicks


River City Paddle Sports is pleased to work with Waterfront Development Corporation to host Solo’s Wilderness First Aid Course. The MEDIC SOLO Disaster + Travel + Wilderness First Aid Course is a blended experience of classroom and hands-on learning. ~50% of student time is spent rotating as mock rescuer and mock patient in realistic care-giving scenarios, making the most of learning-by-doing, and forming muscle memory. The course will be held in the second-floor conference room of WDC on Louisville’s Waterfront with outdoor exercises around the park and on the Ohio River. Solo is the oldest continuously-operating school of wilderness medicine on the planet, they teach courses for the National Outdoor Leadership School and Outward Bound. While the title is Wilderness First Aid, the classes apply directly to Urban Disaster Preparedness, check out their rationale. Interested in making your outdoor experiences safer, sign up here.
