Raritan Valley First Aid Meet

The Raritan District will be holding its annual First Aid Meet on Saturday December 14, 2019. It is expected that over 350 Scouts BSA members will participate in the event. The First Aid Meet is an opportunity for Scouts to sharpen their first aid skills on other Scouts who participate as “victims.” The Scouts must be able to assess a situation and then follow the correct procedures for treating and transporting their “victims” to whatever additional first aid is required. The patrols then receive a score based on how well and how completely they treated their “victim.”

The event takes place at the Somerset County Emergency Services Training Academy, 402 Roycefield Road, Hillsborough, NJ. The cost is $10.00 per participant (no charge for judges or victims). Registration must be done online by December 7, 2019.
