Medic First Aid/CPR and AED Training
Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast offers first aid and CPR courses. As described in Chapter 4 of Volunteer Essentials
, a first-aider is an adult volunteer who has taken Girl Scout-approved first-aid and CPR training that includes specific instructions for child CPR.
Note: Make sure a general first-aid kit is available at your group meeting place and accompanies girls on any activity (including transportation to and from the activity).
The presence of a first-aider is required for many group activities. The course required to be a First Aider is one that offers standard first aid and CPR, preferably with a focus on children.
Note: The following healthcare providers may also serve as first aiders: physician, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, paramedic, military medic, and emergency medical technician. Volunteers are required to provide copies of cards and/or certificates that show current completion of First Aid and CPR training taken with a provider outside of GSWISE course offerings.
