Exploring the great outdoors can present many unexpected challenges and emergencies, so it's always best to be prepared.

Instructors include physicians with specialized field experience in wilderness medical emergencies. The course is ideal for outdoor guides, educators and search and rescue members. While the course doesn't start until next month, the deadline to register is Friday, Sept. 23. It costs $700 (includes course materials) and pre-coursework is required. There are only 21 spots, so register soon at bakerti.org/wilderness-first-responder-course-bend-oregon. Baker Technical Institute is located at 2500 E St., Baker City.
