The First Aid Meet is an event that challenges Scouts abilities to perform first aid in simulated real-life situations. Boy Scout Patrols compete in practical first aid problems, displaying hands-on skills from the Boy Scout Handbook, First Aid Merit Badge pamphlet and current American Red Cross guidelines. Trophies will be awarded to the top three patrols. The top three scoring patrols represent the district at the council First Aid Meet.
Webelos can work on the requirements for the Webelos First Responder Adventure Pin.
The early registration cost is $6.50 per Scout and includes a patch. Onsite registration is $10 (check payable to SHAC) at the door and patches are not guaranteed. Door prizes will be given away.
Registration opens in August

- BSA Annual Health and Medical form (Parts A, B) for every participant
- Troops are responsible for bringing the following items: Five Boy Scouts to compete as a team (alternates accepted), Field Uniform, patrol flag, patrol yell, troop first aid kit, blankets, poles for making a stretcher, day pack for each scout, adult leader, first aid skills, team building skills, leadership skills, Scout spirit!
First Aid Meet Rules
Each patrol will be presented a problem and will have a set amount of time to solve the problem. At each problem, there will be four performers and one victim (any other patrol member must “sit out”). Each member must serve as a victim in at least one problem situation. No books or pamphlets are allowed.
Scenarios: For each scenario, there will be five Scouts allowed in the contest grid. All other patrol members must "sit out." Each member should serve as a victim in at least one scenario. No books, electronic devices, cards or pamphlets are allowed. The final scenario will be a Mega Scenario, in which all five Scouts will have to actively participate.
Judging: The judging standard will be the current Boy Scout Handbook, First Aid Merit Badge pamphlet and current American Red Cross guidelines. Scouts will need to know how to perform CPR with respirations and compressions and how to use an AED.
Judges: Each patrol should provide at least one Scouter or Scout parent that can serve as a judge. While not mandatory for participation, this adult judge will ensure enough judges to assist with the meet and finish in a timely manner. Judges will be instructed in scoring procedures prior to the scenarios and will not judge their own team.
Trophies will be awarded for the top three teams and a patch given to all registered Scouts. Scout's name will be entered into the door prize drawings. Gather your Scout friends, practice first aid skills and join us in the Raven District First Aid Meet!
