Spring 2018 Wilderness First Aid Courses

What is WFA?

Wilderness first aid is the specific discipline of First Aid which relates to care in remote areas, where emergency medical services will be difficult to obtain or will take a long time to arrive.
Wilderness First Aid is a two-day, 16 hour class designed for trip leaders, camp counselors, and outdoor enthusiasts. A current CPR certification is a pre-requisite, however no other previous experience is required. This emergency response training includes patient assessment, musculoskeletal and soft tissue injuries, splinting, and a variety of other topics.
Providing primary care in bad weather with non-standard equipment and coping with long term care and emergency response: Wilderness First Aid places these issues first and foremost.
Lecture and discussion, practical exercise and outdoor scenarios help students gain confidence, and encourage the development of critical decision making skills.

CPR/AED Certification Training is offered on the preceding Friday night if needed.

Knot-Tying Videos and Instructions

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Fellow Scouters,

I created some FREE KNOT-TYING VIDEOS as a follow-up favor for adults who participated in our local Scoutmaster training sessions. Then it occurred to me that other adults and older youth might also find them helpful; thus, this e-mail announcing

The videos are FREE TO VIEW ONLINE. Each focuses on examples, techniques and terminology that I used as a Scoutmaster to TEACH YOUTH and ADULT VOLUNTEERS to tie knots, hitches and lashes. I’ve also thrown-in a few personal favorites that are useful in everyday life--the "hour-a-week left after Scouting." :)

I commend you and thank you for your involvement with Scouting.

P.S. Please let me know of any corrections, oversights, clarifications or suggestions on the videos and/or site itself:

Yours in Scouting,

Jeff Casey
