Be Prepared! To Save a Life --- CPR and Wilderness First Aid Training
Upon completion of the Wilderness First Aid (WFA) training in November, Scoutmaster Cannon challenged others to become WFA certified. Committee Chair Mr. J McKenna has taken up this challenge and completed the first steps - updating his CPR certification and scheduling for the WFA class in April. To make it easier for others to join, here are a few tips:
Valid CPR certification is a prerequisite for WFA. Typically CPR certifications need to be renewed every 2 years. To re/certify for CPR, visit the red cross website (https://www.redcross.org/take-a-class/cpr?latitude=40.4993&longitude=-74.399).
- Visit https://scoutingevent.com/358-WFA2017_2018 to see a list of nearby scheduled WFA classes and to register. Mr. McKenna will be attending the class on April 21-22, 2018. There is also a session June 2-3. 2018.
Troop 17 will reimburse Scouts and registered Scouters for the tuition costs. If you have any questions, please see Mr. McKenna or Scoutmaster Cannon.
