CPR/AED and Wilderness First Aid Courses

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. A BSA-led task force has developed WFA doctrine and curriculum. Participants will learn how to assess, treat, and (when possible) contain emergencies within the scope of their training. Youth and adult Scout leaders over age 14 are invited to participate and earn their certification.

Why is this important?
This course goes far beyond what you may know as "first aid." While it contains substantial medical information and teaches skills required for medical emergencies in the wild, the deeper purpose is to train participants to manage acute situations. The bottom line is this: Better decision-making at the incident scene miles from base facilities can save valuable time and human resources. It can save lives, too.
 
Who is it for?
Youth and adult Scout leaders are encouraged to take this first-aid course, which offers a management dimension that most curriculum's fail to address. Scout leaders will likely find it the most valuable program they'll ever take.
