Cedar Bayou Grace United Methodist Church in Kay's Theater

The First Aid Meet is an event that challenges Scouts abilities to perform first aid in simulated real-life situations. Scouts in troops (patrols) compete in practical first aid problems, displaying hands-on skills from the 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. Scouts will be judged on first aid skills, team building skills, leadership skills and 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 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 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.

Scouting Safely

Safety is Your Responsibility posterThe BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on the safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them. 

BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:

  • Two-deep leadership on all outings required.  
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. 
  • The buddy system should be used at all times. 
  • Discipline must be constructive.

Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council have developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
