Some practical tips include: How to triage, assess, and identify medical emergencies; what to include in a first aid kit for your home; when to seek help for health emergencies; how to safely move a sick or injured person; how to perform CPR and use an automatic external defibrillator; what the proper procedures are for broken bones, hypothermia, burns, and sprains; and so much more! Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The BSA is committed to training youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities." -- Provided by publisher.
