BSA Wilderness First Aid Course


Get certified in Wilderness First Aid!

March 24-25 at the Pine Tree Council Scout Center

Sign up HERE

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.

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. If you wish to download the curriculum, please register here first; we would like to know the number of Scouts and Scouters who are interested.

Who is it for?

Youth 14 and older and adult Scout leaders are encouraged to take this first-aid course, which offers a management dimension that most curriculums fail to address. Scout leaders will likely find it the most valuable program they’ll ever take.

Course modules:

  • Patient assessment
  • Chest injuries
  • Shock
  • Head (brain) and spinal injuries
  • Bone and joint injuries
  • Wounds and wound infection
  • Abdominal problems
  • Hypothermia
  • Heat problems
  • Lightning
  • Altitude illnesses
  • Submersion incidents
  • Allergies and anaphylaxis
  • Wilderness first-aid kits
  • Scenarios

Be a Part of Pine Tree Council's Future!

With the start of 2018 comes the start of the Pine Tree Council Strategic Planning Process.  Everyone with any relationship to Scouting is invited to the first of several preparation sessions to gather the “big rocks” of what makes Scouting in Pine Tree Council great, what could be adjusted to be better for Scouting in Maine, and dream about what could be the future of our slice of Scouting heaven.  Council board members, chartered organization representatives, commissioners, Merit Badge counselors, district and council committee members, unit-level volunteers, parents of Scouts, Order of the Arrow officers and advisers, Venturing/Sea Scouting/Exploring officers and advisers, community members—everyone is invited to share their observations and dreams for Scouting in Maine.

**Where:**  Camp William Hinds, 146 Plains Road, Raymond, ME
**When:**  March 22, 2018 from 7:00pm – 8:30pm in the new Dining Hall (after the Council Executive Board meeting prior from 6pm-7pm)

Come prepared to share your thoughts about Pine Tree Council and Scouting in Maine!
