Being prepared for every possible situation can be difficult to achieve.

Heather has an assortment of items that may come in handy, ranging from a variety of herbs or cool water to bandages and feminine hygiene products. Heather has 10 years of experience working in the field of emergency medicine. She ski patrolled, as an EMT Basic, at Discovery Ski Area for 6 years until the birth of her daughter in 2010. She has been involved in the first aid station at the gathering since 2005. Have a scrape, splinter or tummy ache? Forget your sunscreen or bug dope? Stop by the First Aid/ Herbal Wellness Tent and visit with Heather.
Heather is looking for several volunteers to help out with the first aid station. One full time volunteer position is open to a person who has their EMT-B license, and 2-3 part time positions available for those who have a minimum CPR/ First Aid certification and some knowledge of herbs. Please contact Lasca or Heather for more details. **If you are interested in helping with the first aid station, but do not have your CPR/First Aid certification, you can take classes put on by your local fire department, or through either the American Heart Association or the Red Cross.**
