Most people don't know how to relieve choking, control a major bleed, or use critical life-saving tools such as an Epipen, AED, or Tourniquet. And so, they limit their experiences, travel, and adventure or worse yet, when they encounter emergencies they feel frozen and unprepared.
Your mission should you choose to accept it is to learn these and many other life-saving skills so you can reduce anxiety, be more self-reliant, and adventure with abandon.
After this course, you will have the skills to prevent emergencies, and effectively respond to those that can not be prevented. Imagine setting off on adventures feeling relaxed, self-reliant, and ready for anything!
