Thank you, Mike Doyle for teaching the Class of 2019 about Wilderness First Responder and preparedness training at the Beaver Count!
Mike has been a Physician's Assistant for 43 years and is still practicing part time. He is an American Red Cross Instructor for Wilderness and Remote First Aid. He has done a moderate amount of backpacking. While in the military he developed an interest in Wilderness Medicine due to his travels to third world countries to do medical humanitarian work.
His knowledge on wilderness survival is mostly that with not having to actually experience being in that situation. Mike has spent a fair amount of time learning how to stay warm and dry in winter weather. Mike does not claim to be an expert in anything.
