As a beginning homesteader, knowing what to do in a medical emergency on the farm or homestead is a must. Let’s face it – any disaster, short term or long term, puts your loved ones in jeopardy without medical preparedness. Whether it’s creating a splint or a quick “band-aid” for a temporary fix until the professionals arrive, having a person or persons in your home prepared to rise to the occasion can be the thing that helps save a life!
This course is designed to impart medical training class education (combined with some hands-on skills) to non-medical professionals. The class is about 8 hours long. Drinks, snacks and lunch are included. A light breakfast of danish and coffee will be available but a healthy breakfast before you arrive would be best to keep your mind sharp and alert.
