Be Prepared! To Save a Life --- CPR and Wilderness First Aid Training
pon completion of the Wilderness First Aid (WFA) training in November, Scoutmaster Cannon challenged others to become WFA certified. Committee Chair Jim 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 (  

  • Visit 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.
