P1000089I may be boasting a little, but I work with some pretty incredible people at Vista Verde. This season particularly, the staff stands out in reference to their first aid and emergency response qualifications. During winter orientation, we created a list for everyone to add their first aid training and certifications – that list is pretty impressive! Two of our staff members are Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Certified, eight are Wilderness Advance First Aid (WAFA) Certified, three are Wilderness First Responders (WFR), and we have one certified EMT.  Not to mention the 16 others who are CPR/First Aid Certified. That’s a lot of people with a lot of knowledge!

A WFR goes through 80 hours of intensive classroom and outdoor training to prepare them for emergency situations where 911 is not an option. WAFA requires 40 hours and WFA requires 16-20. That means collectively we have over 800 hours of training! As you can see from the list, almost every department has one person with advanced training. Although no one wants to be in an emergency situation, it’s encouraging to know you would be in the right hands if the circumstance did occur!
