Yeah, you could go for your Woofer. A woofer is a Wilderness First Responder. Basically, it teaches you the skills to keep you and the injured party safe and treat what you can until a higher unit (EMT) is able to reach your location. The program, to my understanding, was originally designed for truckers and hikers that are often in remote locations. Its part survival and part medical. I know a place near me (Camp Dagget) runs a course in August. Takes 5 days, I think. I keep meaning to go get mine, but I can never schedule it. Hopefully next year.
