Wilderness First Aid
Friday, October 7th – Sunday, October 9th
Camp FGL

Who should take this training? Scouters and senior scouts that conduct wilderness outings OR are planning on attending high adventure treks and/or other events (ex. Jamboree) that require Wilderness First Aid trained participants.
 
Why should I take this training? While most First Aid certification classes cover what to do while waiting for the arrival of EMS (Emergency Medical Services, i.e. the Fire Department, EMTs and/or paramedics), a Wilderness First Aid class addresses patient needs in those situations or environments where EMS is not available, or may be significantly delayed. This is often the situation we, as scouts, find ourselves in when we are on our outdoor adventures and outings. For this reason, we always need to make sure that we have Wilderness First Aid trained personnel.

Costs: $170 - $230 depending on if the CPR prerequisite class is needed and taken on Friday evening AND whether you are bringing your own food or eating the menu provided. 
 
Minimum age: 14
 
Prerequisites: Participants are required to have a current CPR certification (bring proof). If you do not have a CPR certification, we will be offering the course Friday night starting at 6pm EST in the Bradshaw training center. Make sure to choose the $30 CPR add-on as part of your registration for this class. 
 
Arrival: Participants need to arrive Friday night by 10pm ET. (*If you are taking the CPR prerequisite class you will need to arrive by 5:45pm EST and will likely only be able to unpack your bags after class.) Eat dinner before you arrive. Class starts at 8am EST on Saturday morning.
 
Departure: Plan to stay through 5pm ET on Sunday.
