OUTDOOR SAFETY COURSES - RED CROSS 
The Baltimore Area Council offers training in American Red Cross:
Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Adult and Pediatric First Aid,
Adult, Child and Infant CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and 
Adult and Child AED (automated external defibrillator)
Here's the benefits:

Convenience: The primary goal is for each council to become self-sufficient with its own
instructors and trainers of those instructors so that BSA staff and volunteers are available to
teach the courses whenever and wherever it best meets local Scouting needs.

A Scout Is Thrifty: It's just a small fee for each person trained, plus the cost of materials. This could result in significant savings over other comparable classes.

Highest Quality: Red Cross training is universally recognized for its effectiveness. It can help
ensure that every one from the Boy Scout working on a First Aid merit badge to a Scouter
leading a unit on a high-adventure trek is fully prepared.

Wilderness and Remote First Aid
Designed for scouts and scout leaders, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who works or spends
time in remote environments, this course teaches advanced skills to be used in emergencies
when professional help may be far away. Based on the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First
Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, this course aligns with OSHA’s Best Practices for
Workplace First Aid Training Programs.
