Are you interested in learning the skills to staff the camp Health Lodge or dealing with possible medical problems when you take your unit out on an event?  Gulfstream Council is offering a BSA-endorsed course that is the first aid merit badge on steroids.  The advanced training course given by the Emergency Care & Safety Institute will not make you an EMT but will come close to that level.  Learn diagnostic skills including blood pressure, pulse oxygen, stethoscope use, etc.  Learn treatment skills for wounds, fractures, burns, illness, etc.

This weekend course at Tanah Keeta will certify you for two years and is recognized internationally.  It will be limited to fifteen Scouters.  The weekend is Friday evening, April 27 through Sunday morning, April 29.  If you already have CPR/AED certification, you will leave early Sunday morning.  If not, plan to stay until around noon to learn those skills.
