WMI instructors Deane Hodde and Justin Padgett were thrilled to teach the first Wilderness Upgrade for Medical Professionals in Black Mountain, NC. Our course was filled with our EMT Intensive students, AT Ridge Runners, Military Medics, Fire Fighters both street and wildland, Paramedics, Rescue Squad members, a handful of EMT's looking for a great and fun way to get continuing education and a fine MD who is just about to be out of residency. What a talented and fun group of folks from around the country. The pics here are from a scenario on hypothermia. Brrrrrrrrr.
