Trash Can Medic

This is a field class that will take place on June 10, from Noon till 4pm, immediately before the main MRA conference opening.

This immersive workshop will teach the participants about teamwork, effective improvisation, and how to more effectively think outside the box. Much of austere care requires the rescuer to be able to improvise medical devices. Reliance on commercial devices at times delays care. This workshop will force the participants to work outside the box and force them to use team work to complete the scenario at hand!

Participants will need to dress for the weather, bring water, head & eye pro and be prepared to get dirty!


Cost:$70 – 1 day
   lunch included
