We have a health care manager on site that is a certified EMT and/or Wilderness First Responder. All staff are trained in First Aid and CPR and at least one staff member on every trip and/or travel program is certified in Wilderness First Aid. We have a physician we can consult by phone and a local clinic and hospital service if needed. It takes at least 45 minutes to transport someone to the next level of care. In some situations it may take longer. We will notify parents as soon as possible if their child becomes ill or is injured seriously enough to be taken to the doctor, or to spend more than a few hours in the health center.
