Description and History
Wilderness First Responders provide critical care during emergency situations in non-urban areas. Receiving 80 hours of training, these volunteers are skilled at handling the multitude of medical emergencies that might be encountered while enjoying the wilderness.
Based on input from many in the WFR community, we have designed a patch that can be sewn onto clothing or equipment. The patch design has been released to the public under the Creative Commons License (Share Alike 3.0) license. It is based on the Star of Life, developed by Leo R. Schwartz, with a backpacker replacing the traditional Rod of Asclepius.
Patches are available for purchase. The manufacturing cost of each patch is $1.50, which is passed directly to the WFR community at no mark-up.
