This workshop will be run by a local pilot who is an Emergency Medicine doctor and will focus on issues that arise when one is the FIRST ON SCENE to an injury, such as:

  • What injuries commonly occur during PG accidents?
  • What might I carry in my harness to be ready for common scenarios?
  • Should I call for help?
  • Who should I call?
  • What are my legal risks for getting involved with an injured pilot?
  • If I get blood on me, am I exposing myself to infection risks?
  • Should I move the pilot?

The information in this workshop could save your life or that of a fellow pilot, but is NOT a replacement for the American Red Cross Basic First Aid & CPR.

Please leave plenty of time to find parking and to arrive on time.

Space is limited to a maximum of 20 people.

Time: 6:45 to 9 pm. on Feb. 21, 2019 at Brightworks in San Francisco
