Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness Remote First Aid Basics is an American Red Cross course for people in back country and similar situations where professional emergency care is more than 30 minutes away. Philmont Scout Ranch requires that at least one member of each crew be certified in this course. Course certification can be earned through a course by our council, or other certified third parties.

The course combines classroom lecture, skills practice and realistic scenarios to teach assessment, basic and advanced first aid techniques, extended care, transports and evacuations. As a prerequisite, participants must have current First Aid and Adult CPR/AED skills equivalent to what is taught in the American Red Cross Standard First Aid and CPR course (bring copy of completion card with you for this class).

A minimum age of 15 is recommended due to the serious nature of the course and scenarios. However, mature youth are strongly encouraged to attend.
