Emergency First Aid at Work for Forestry (EFAW➕F)

About the course

The knowledge required to provide life saving skills should be made as simple as possible, to allow you to work as best as possible in a stressful situation. Our Emergency First Aid at Work ➕ F does exactly that!

Forestry First Aid is indeed a specific discipline in First Aid because it presents the rescuer with the unique situation of prolonged care of a patient in a remote area before definitive medical care can be provided. In this situation, the emergency medical services may be delayed due to difficult access. Therefore, in light of this, a number of additional skills and considerations are required compared to the urban setting.
