Medical Training Resources

Larimer County Search and Rescue does not endorse any of the following organizations.

There are many good organizations that teach medical courses.

Check your local area for courses near you.

Larimer County Search and Rescue does not offer medical training courses.

We recommend that people receive some kind of medical training, whether it be a Wilderness First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, or an EMT course. It is also important that CPR training be included.

It is imperative that a person keeps current in their medical training. Like any other discipline techniques change and evolve. A "medical technique" used ten years ago is not necessarily the "medical technique" to use today.

The following is a list of resources for medical training.
