SCA Safety Intern Training

As some of you may have heard, from Monday, June 15 through Saturday, June 20, Mount Rainier will be hosting the SCA's Public Safety Internship Training. While we are always so happy to have the SCA come up and work with us, what's really cool is that Park Staff and Volunteers have been invited to come attend the training. This is the training for SCA interns from all over the country, so we're pretty lucky.

A schedule for the event is available here.

Part of this training is a Wilderness First Aid certification course. This is a nationally recognized certification that covers how to handle many of the possible medical emergencies that may occur in a wilderness setting.

The WFA course is taking all day on Wednesday, June 17 and Thursday, June 18. It costs $200 a person, and there are spots for about 10 more people. If you are interested in attending this training you should contact the event organizer, Emily Poore (e-mail:, phone: 603.504.3339). [UPDATE: If you plan to attend, please contact Emily no later than JUNE 1.]

I would encourage any volunteers interested to take part, it should be an educational experience.
