This work week was incredibly exciting because we got to take our first group trip traveling down to Phoenix. We had two amazing days of Wilderness First Aid training (or as I like to mistakenly call it: Wildlife First Aid) given by Mike England with a diverse group of fellow trainees.
We learned how to respond to accident situations such as helping a mildly injured patient hike out of the backcountry, or of keeping a severely injured patient remain stable until professional help can arrive. We memorized so many acronyms that our heads are still spinning, such as RICE, our ABC's, the PAS, LOC, and a ridiculous amount of other examples. I just hope I can remember all of the correct procedures and not pass out at the first site of blood.
After driving back from Phoenix we immediately jumped back into work with a volunteer group planting at the Visitor Center. It was good to be back! We finished up the week doing more caging and watering. Our sites are really coming along.
