First aid baseball is a fun way to review first aid skills with Scouts BSA and Webelos. There are instructions for the game and a set of question cards included in the printable file.
First Aid Merit Badge
First aid - caring for injured or ill persons until they can receive professional medical care - is an important skill for every Scout. With some knowledge of first aid, a Scout can provide immediate care and help to someone who is hurt or who becomes ill. First aid can help prevent infection and serious loss of blood. It could even save a limb or a life.
The First Aid merit badge is required for the rank of Eagle Scout
Printable helps for requirements:
Scouts learn how to handle a variety of emergency situations while working on the First Aid merit badge: shock, heart attack, cuts, broken bones, hypothermia, bee stings, heatstroke, convulsions, dehydration, pains, cramps, and more. They learn to “be prepared” for many types of illnesses and injuries.
The National Outdoor awards recognize Scouts BSA and Varsity Scouts who really get into outdoor activities. This award recognizes Scouts who do a lot of camping and who have the skills to be comfortable and safe at camp.
To complete the First Aid elective for the Venturing Ranger award, Venturers must put together a personal first aid kit and teach others how to put a kit together. They must also take an emergency first aid course, emergency response course, or EMT course.
