Aquila District

First Aid-O-Ree LogoThe First Aid-O-Ree is a fun competition where Patrols from various Troops in the District compete against each other by solving and acting out different first aid scenarios. It is a great opportunity for Scouts (and adults) to reinforce their first aid knowledge by practicing their skills in several real life scenarios. Scouts in each Patrol will take turns demonstrating their leadership under challenging and unexpected conditions. The goal is that each Scout would leave at the end of the evening with more knowledge and skill in first aid, and confidence in his abilities.

The Aquila District First Aid-O-Ree will be held this year at St. Bernadette School Hall in Burien, Washington. There is a limited amount of time on a Wednesday evening, so Patrol Leaders, please register your Patrols to help ensure that our event starts and ends on time.

Check back for the 2020 event date.
