Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is the assessment of and treatment given to an ill or injured person in a remote environment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available. This 16-hour hands-on training will prepare you to safely participate in unit outdoor adventures and will qualify you to attend the National Jamboree or any BSA High Adventure base. Participants will learn how to assess, treat, and (when possible) contain emergencies within the scope of their training. Adult Scout leaders and youth 14 years old or older are invited to participate and earn their certification.
