First Aid Essentials - What's in your kit?


Free for REI Members

Free for non-members


  • Minimum age 14
  • Group size 30 people
  • Instructor REI WFR Trained Specialist

Within this class, students will be exposed to the types and basic components of the medical kit. The instructor will dig into one of our kits and identify essential items to take on the first aid kit. This class will have a discussion about pre-assemble kits vs. do-it-yourself kit. In addition, participants will learn about preventative behaviors to avoid using the first aid kit. This class serves as an excellent preparation course for the 16-hours Wilderness First Aid class since the course does not provide a certification for first aid or wilderness first aid. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
