I'm organizing a self-taught wilderness first aid refresher course, mainly for people who already took some sort of first aid course before, but it is open for everyone. I plan to meet biweekly until we got the most important /most useful/most fun topics covered. This will be the second session.

If you missed the last session(s) you can still attend just fine since we will discuss another topic.

Note that this is not at all a professional course. More details can be found in the message board:,93674 Please post any questions or suggestions there.

Location: Buchanan building, BUCH D201 (different room than last time)

Starting time: 6:30pm

Topic: Sprained an ankle, hands on practice. Afterwards Jannu will present something

 What to bring: first aid equipment or gear that can be used for improvising, related books, laptops, notes from courses etc.,

If you want to practice sprained ankle taping, tape and benzoine is useful.
