First aid is a critical skill in Scouting. If you’re active outdoors, you’ve probably had to do some form of first aid. As a leader, not only do you need to be prepared for these situations, you may get asked to teach these skills to your Scouts.
Bring your Scouts to learn from our experienced team how to handle first aid! Each youth will still need to demonstrate these actions to their leader for rank advancement sign-off.
We’ll teach the following requirements.
- Scout Rank Requirements
