I understand that the Wilderness First Aid Class will include risks that are inherent to outdoor activities and may include (but

Emergency Response Training LLC is in no way responsible for determining the physical or mental abilities of the students and
their ability to fully participate in the class. I understand that if I have any medical concerns I will address them with my
physician prior to the class. I will also notify the instructor of any medical issues or disabilities that may interfere with my
participation in the class. I know of no medical health reason why any minor I am signing for should not participate in the class.

I hereby release, hold harmless and agree not to sue Emergency Response Training LLC, it’s officers, trustees, agents, and staff
