Overview: This accelerated course provides information and
practice in dealing with breathing and cardiac emergencies in adults,
children, and infants, identifying and caring for bleeding, sudden
illnesses, injuries and preventing disease transmission.
CPR/AED and First Aid Certifications are good for 2 years. Be sure
to arrive on time and wear comfortable clothing. You may wish to bring
something to kneel on if desired. Bring your lunch if the course runs
over lunchtime. This is an adult training, no children, please. This
course is 4 hours long.
Fee: There is a fee for this course, please check the listing
for more information.
Note: It is recommended that an adult volunteer not serve as
both the troop/group First Aider and the Troop Camper on the same trip.
You may have individuals in your troop who are already First Aid/CPR
trained or are a nurse, physician, paramedic, physician’s assistant or
emergency medical personnel who have had advanced training beyond
standard first aid and community CPR. If so, they may serve as your
First Aider by completing the First Aider registration form and provide their
certification or licensing.
If you plan to be in an area where EMS access is more than 30
minutes, you will need to have someone certified in Wilderness First
Aid. This course is available through the Red Cross and is also part
of our partnership.
