First Aid & CPR

Girls may choose some activities for which a first aider may be necessary. Girl Scouts of the USA has established two levels of first aid. Level 1 is a basic level appropriate for most troop activities. Level 2 is an advanced training class for high-adventure activities and large events.

A Level 1 or Level 2 first aider is a person, 18 years or older, who has received training in first aid and CPR. This may include a physician, dentist, registered nurse, pediatric nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, paramedic, emergency medical technician or military medic. If that person is comfortable with his/her emergency medicine skills and the licensing/certification is current, then they do not have to take additional training.

You are not required to take a first aid and CPR class from our council to be a Girl Scout first aider. First aid and CPR classes may be offered by recreation and park districts, school district adult education programs, fire departments, medical facilities, or local American Red Cross chapters. Check in your community to learn if a class is offered. Online courses for First Aid and CPR are not accepted by our council.
