idk, but around here its more of an informal arrangement, volunteer and get a pass there are some travellers that will do a week or month. I got a bud that does the season in taos.

However on the hill its really just to triage/stabilize for transport and only a guess as to diagnosis and certainly no treatment is assumed/ least here it field stabilization and there are no labs, xray or such. Its always recommended to follow up with your doc or go to the er. But it is free and they will give you a cardboard splint....however the heli or medic ride to the er is not.

To Op the nearest hospital is at least 70 minutes away by car/medic and 20-30 by heli...but they have to get there first and there are times the weather is to bad to fly up.

Personally I like the arrangement in that my ticket prices are not supporting a on hill medical clinic.
