The Outdoor Emergency Care 5th Ed. text is required for this course. I am not obtaining textbooks for my classes. You need to obtain both the textbook yourselves. You MUST get the Fifth Edition.

Outdoor Emergency Care: Comprehensive Prehospital Care for Nonurban Settings 5th edition 

The Outdoor Emergency Care text maintains OEC’s relevance to the patrolling environment. With sections on how to assess and care for various outdoor sports emergencies, manage mass-casualty incidents, interface with EMS personnel, and care for outdoor adaptive athletes, the Fifth edition is designed to help rescuers deal with any emergency situation they might encounter. Contains updates on the special equipment and techniques used by patrollers and other nonurban rescuers. Completely redesigned, this 1272-page resource features hundreds of detailed four-color photographs and illustrations to underscore the numerous logistics of nonurban care, whether it entails dealing with environmental illnesses such as altitude sickness, deep frostbite, and hypothermia, or managing ski, snowboard, and other outdoor injuries.
