How did you spend your Saturday?
I had a great (but long) day doing Red Cross Training. I presented CPR/AED in the morning and then Wilderness and Remote First Aid all afternoon and evening to a great bunch of Scouters preparing for high adventurs this summer. Some are going to Philmont, others to Seabase, and a couple to Okpik at Northern Tier next month. There were a couple of Venturing folks preparing for a canoe trip, too. I'll be completing the class tomorrow afternoon.
It's fun to hear the adventures different troops are planning and to discuss how to best prepare. Each BSA high adventure base requires a WRFA certified person on every crew, so don't wait too long to get your crew ready. Sometimes the WRFA classes are hard to find.
The Red Cross could always use more instructors, too. If you like to teach, have some outdoors experience, and would like to do first aid and CPR training, consider contacting your local Red Cross chapter to find out more. It's another good way to spend your Saturdays, or other days of the week.
