District First Aid Rally 2013

Baden Powell District First Aid Rally
Saturday, December 14, 2013

The District First Aid Rally is this Saturday.  Come out with your regular patrol or join others for a "competition" patrol.  Test out your preparedness skills against Scouts from other troops.  

Here's who told us at the PLC they'd like to compete in the First Aid Rally: 

Derrick, Adam Z, Jake, Sanjit, Andrew N plus all the Red Hawks!  Come help them succeed!

This material is not difficult, and it's a key part of "Be Prepared" to be always on top of your first aid skills.  Please come out for the morning (and do some preparation by reading/practicing the first aid material in your Scout Handbook).

Meet at Epiphany Catholic Church (Walton Road and Township Line Road, Plymouth Meeting - MAP -) at 8:45 AM.  Wear your Scout uniform and name tag proudly (and wear your neckerchief, which can be used as a cravat bandage).  Bring a bottle of water and non-messy snack to provide you with energy throughout the morning.  The event ends at Noon.

Please wear your Troop 98 uniform proudly!

Eight man patrols will compete. Each patrol should bring
  • a first aid kit
  • splinting materials
  • two blankets
  • two six foot long poles
Older more experienced scouts and adults are asked to attend as judges.

Problems will be judged based upon the published Readiness Activity requirements, the Boy Scout Handbook, the First Aid and Emergency Preparedness Merit badge handbooks. Scouts should have an awareness of blood borne pathogens and taken appropriate precautions. The American Heart association guidelines for skilled CPR which include chest compressions and breaths will be used rather than lay approach of chest compressions only. Other sources will not be considered for judging the correctness of problems.  Take a look at a sample problem HERE.

RSVP HERE  and your patrol leader or a Senior Scout will confirm your participation
