A first-aider is an adult volunteer who has taken Girl Scout approved first-aid and CPR training, that includes specific instructions for child CPR. The Safety Activity Checkpoints tell you when a first-aider needs to be present.
There are two categories of first-aiders:
- First-aider (Level 1): The presence of a first-aider (Level 1) is required for many group activities. The course required to be a first-aider (Level 1) is one that offers standard first-aid and CPR, preferably with a focus on children. The Safety Activity Checkpoints state clearly when a first-aider (Level 1) is needed.
- First-aider (Level 2): The presence of a first-aider (Level 2) is required at resident camp, and at any camp activity with more than 200 participants. The Safety Activity Checkpoints state clearly when a first-aider (Level 2) is needed. First-aiders (Level 2) pass the same course as the first-aiders (Level 1), and also have emergency response/first response, sports safety, wilderness first-aid, and/or advanced first-aid and CPR training. Each organization has a different name for its training, so be sure to ask whether a training course fulfills the Level-2 requirements.
