This American Red Cross Wilderness First Aid Basics is a 16-hour first aid course for back-country situations when EMS is not readily available. The course meets the current requirements for Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier and other BSA high adventure programs. This course is designed especially for Venturing Crews and Patrols and older Scouts, as well as adults supporting an advanced outdoor program.
This course is being offered to scout leaders that are taking units on high adventure outings. Priority will be given to units attending High Adventure bases in the coming year. Northern Tier and BSA Sea Base require that at least one trained leader in each crew take this training or meet equivalent training requirements, Philmont requires at least two trained leaders per crew! Other scouts and scouters may take this course if there is space available.
