Think About This
While the focus of our training is on wilderness situations, the skills that we teach can be used in urban emergencies as well. In fact, you can think of urban emergency training as a special case of wilderness training, for situations where you have far more resources, and professional help is usually no more than ten minutes away. But if a major disaster disrupts urban services, and cuts you off from urban resources, then for the purposes of emergency care you are in a wilderness situation.

Our WEC courses appeal not only to those who do wilderness activities, but also to those who want to prepare for disasters, and to anyone who wants more thorough and intensive training than most urban-oriented courses can offer. In our courses, we train people to think - to use their brains as well as their hands. And we train them to improvise with whatever they have or can find at the scene.
