Did you know that BP&P 10002 indicates that:
"At least one adult has first aid training and first aid equipment appropriate for the activity and is designated as the “First Aider”. If an adult is not present for any reason, a youth member must have first aid training and first aid equipment appropriate to the activity and be designated as the “First Aider”.
The implication is that if someone becomes injured and the "First Aider" has to transport the injured to a medical facility, the rest of the individuals participating in an outdoor activity would no longer be covered and the activity would have to cease immediately. Common sense dictates that there should be at least two certified first aiders at every outdoor activity to provide adequate coverage.
Scouting University is organizing one Standard First Aid + CPR C course scheduled to run during an available weekend in January 2016 at the Canadian College of EMS, 4712 - 91 Avenue, Edmonton, AB. This course is primarily for Scouters to ensure minimum requirements for meetings and camps can be met. Any remaining available seats may be offered to mature Vents.
We are gather email addresses of people who are interested in taking this course. We need at least 12 people to register for email updates before we will commit resources.
If you are interested in taking a Standard First Aid + CPR C course in January 2016, please sign up for the email update list and we will contact you once the details become available.
