Seminar focused on outdoor first aid set for Jan. 23

The Viking Sportsmen have hosted free seminars open to everyone on big game hunting in the west, fishing and whitetails. Now their next seminar for the public is focused on outdoor safety and first aid.

Brad Brejcha is a retired Douglas County Sheriff who now works at Alexandria Technical and Community College. Brejcha is an instructor of first aid and CPR, along with being a committee member for Douglas County Pheasants Forever.

Brejcha will host the seminar for the Viking Sportsmen on Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. It will take place at the Bemo Building on the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

Topics covered will focus on what to do in case of an accident in the outdoors when getting medical attention by trained staff right away is not an option.
