WFR

Spring Break

For more info visit WMA (Wilderness Medical Associates).

The WFR course offers fast-paced hands-on training in backcountry medicine.

Mornings are devoted to lecture while afternoons and evenings are spent outside working on practical skills. Students perform in full-scale rescue simulations (complete with fake wounds and stage blood) and learn to respond in a crisis.

Getting your WFR will help you get any number of jobs in outdoor fields and is great knowledge to have if you spend a lot of time in the wilderness.

The course is exceptionally affordable to University of Redlands¬†students through a generous Emergency Preparedness Grant provided to make OP’s trips safer, as well as make the campus community better prepared for emergencies.


There are more than 1,700 trees on the University of Redlands campus.
