The Bamfield/Anacla First Responder Training Program will take place from April 25 to 30, 2016. The community expressed an interest in developing First Responder capacity recently. So, at this time, committed candidates are needed to fill 18 available spots .
Please note that nine of the spots are reserved for Huu-ay-aht Citizens, as per the Nations’ funding requirements. This five-day course will take approximately seven hours per session, with breaks for lunch and coffee. Food and beverages are going to be provided. There is a written and practical examination on the final day.
This is a great opportunity being delivered by the Nation, in partnership with the Justice Institute of B.C. (JIBC), as the first step in potentially offering a series of courses in Anacla that would ladder up to paramedic training in the long run. In the short term, it helps to build capacity to handle emergencies in the area.
