Wilderness First Responder students practicing lifting, moving, and extrication — during a simulation.

Being able to safely (and quickly) move an injured patient takes confidence, training, and teamwork.

Here’s some effective leadership (and followership) at work!

This if from day 4 of last week’s Hybrid WFR course with Wilderness Medical Associates @wildmed at @cieletbois in Cantley, QC (just outside of Ottawa, ON)…

Unveiling the 750sq ft meeting room / classroom / multi-use room!!!!!

This was an uninsulated garage 6 weeks ago. We’ve been working on it in between groups…

By the end of next week, it’ll be finished to the point that groups can use it (A/V for presentations, fixtures, decor…) — and then in April we’ll be adding:
- lots of glass (windows and patio doors) for gorgeous views and natural light
- a sink, fridge, kitchen cabinets, and coffee/tea counter
- A/C 
- Furniture and overall design in the works by Karen Charron of @brokanta_shop so it’ll be as beautiful and functional as the rest of the property.

Bam! We’ve got a space that groups can use for:
- hanging out 🏄‍♂️
- meetings 📈🧑‍💻
- yoga 🧘
- dance parties 🪕🕺💃
- quilting 🧵🪡
- events 🎪
- drying out your winter gear 🧦🛷
- workshops and classes 🎓📚🧐
- training 🏋️‍♂️
- packing, planning, and launching a group adventure 🗺️🥾🚵‍♂️
- big games 
- …anything you can think of where you need a big, open, indoor space


Dévoilement de notre salle de réunion / classe / salle polyvalente de 750 pieds carrés !!!!!

Il y a 6 semaines, c’était un garage non isolé. On a travaillé dessus entre les groupes…

	•	un évier, un frigo, des armoires de cuisine, et un comptoir à café/thé
	•	climatisation
	•	Meubles et design global en cours par Karen Charron de @brokanta_shop, donc ça sera aussi beau et fonctionnel que le reste de la propriété.

Bam ! On a un espace que les groupes peuvent utiliser pour :

	•	se détendre 🏄‍♂️
	•	réunions 📈🧑‍💻
	•	yoga 🧘

Look what we got!… Cette semaine, nous avons reçu et installé 2 poêles à bois chez Ciel! // This week, we installed 2 wood burning stoves at Ciel

1 au sous-sol, et 1 dans la salle de réunion (nouvelle révélation de la salle de réunion bientôt !!) 
1 in the basement, and 1 in the meeting room (new meeting room reveal coming soon)

This stove is the Green Mountain 60 from @hearthstonecompany — it’s cast iron, lined with soapstone, and is super efficient with low emissions.

From the Hearthstone website:


The TruHybrid™ system combines primary and secondary combustion with a tertiary combustion using a catalyst to achieve ultra clean combustion…

Once engaged, the catalysts clean any unburned dust and gases before they go up the chimney. With the air control set to low, your stove will burn slowly and efficiently…This long, slow, efficient burn means you’re getting the most heat out of each piece of wood.

The fire visible through the front window is the result of primary and secondary combustion at work. Primary combustion is the burning of the solid fuel, the wood. Secondary combustion happens above the wood, burning the gases the wood gives off. Tertiary combustion takes place in the catalyst. Any remaining dust and gases are burned before going up the chimney.”

We can’t wait to get cozy in front of the fire 😊
