WRFA
Wilderness First Aid Training Since I returned from my AZT hike, I've presented Red Cross CPR/AED and Wilderness First Aid training four times to over 50 people and will be doing it the next two weekends as well. Last week, I presented to the high adventure staff of a local BSA camp. They've got a very busy summer ahead of them and I was glad to see they're taking their responsibility of caring for the youth seriously. That camp is starting an ATV program this summer and were just sending a couple staff to a special training session to get cleared to run the program. I expect it will be popular!

Lots of demand for WRFA training because it's now required for Philmont, SeaBase, Northern Tier, and highly recommended for all unit-run treks. I expect The Summit will require it as well. It's a lot of fun to do and I always enjoy meeting more Scouters from the area. It does make for a long weekend, though, since we do a lot of hands-on scenarios.

The Red Cross could use more people presenting this training, so please consider contacting your local chapter about becoming an instructor. It's a great way to make Scouting safer for everyone.
