Medics on the Scene!

In small teams, create a first aid scenario for the other members of your Section. You can use props and make up to make it look realistic. When you make your scenario, talk about the signs and symptoms that the first aiders can look for when they attempt a rescue.

Keep it Simple

  • What goes in a first aid kit? Prepare for this adventure by making personal first aid kits that you can bring to your next hike or camp. Don’t actually use the supplies inside them for pretend scenarios – you’ll want to save them for a real incident!
