HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT FIRST AID TRAINING (HEFAT)
The main aim of this 2-day workshop is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to operate safely as first responders to medical situations in remote, challenging and hostile environments. The course focuses on stabilization of the casualties, through to the skills required for prolonged field care until evacuation or the arrival of professional medical care.
The first day of the course is based on the Emergency First Aid at Work EFAW. This part of the workshop will show you how to deal with everyday emergencies and basic trauma injuries such as those encountered in a road traffic collision. On the second day, we integrate scenarios that participants may be likely to encounter when travelling to remote areas. Our training is tailored to suit organisations or persons travelling to or operating in challenging, remote environments where access to medical facilities is limited. It goes beyond the usual basic first aid course by integrating medical emergency scenarios that may occur when in environments where medical facilities are not readily accessible. The course is ideal for participants with little or no first aid training or those wishing to enhance their existing knowledge. All our Remote First Aid workshops are delivered by professionals with experience of providing medical care in a hostile and/or remote environment.
