2017 Safety Weekend
April 7-9, 2017
Help keep our scouts safe. Get training in the following areas:
Wilderness First Aid Training
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is the assessment of and treatment given to an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available. Participants will learn how to assess, treat, and (when possible) contain emergencies within the scope of their training. One of the first things you’ll learn to do is establish control. Emergencies may be charged with emotion and confusion. Emergencies call for a leader to be directive, at least until the scene is safe and the patient is stabilized. This and many other important information and skills will be covered in this training. Youth and adult Scout leaders over age 14 are invited to participate and earn their certification. This course is 16-hours and requires participation in full to qualify as Wilderness First Aid trained. Class size limited to 28 participants.
Prerequisites: Current adult CPR and AED certification. If certification is needed, an approved online course can be taken prior to the training. ECSI gives a discount to BSA members.
