2015 Wilderness First Aid Class - March 7 and March 8

For many years, we have made arrangements to offer multiple levels of first aid training to our Scouts AND the adults who help support our trips. BSA requires that at least one adult on each activity be certified in first aid and CPR. Our goal however, is to have ALL adults who attend campouts and especially major adventure trips certified in first aid and CPR. 

Over the years, our Scouts and adult leaders have been the primary first aid providers at several major accident scenes. Their quality skills have allowed them to work side-by-side with regular EMS providers at several accident scenes where we were first on the scene. Several of our older Scouts have/are serving on BVSD high school Emergency Response Teams.

The cost of this class can be charged through your troop account if you have funds available.
