Dear Scoutmasters & Committee Chairs:
The 2018 First Aid Meet will be different this year. It will take place outside at the Oley
Fairgrounds. This year will be a wilderness-themed First Aid Meet. All the Scenarios are things that can
Happen on a Campout, High Adventure or a hiking weekend .
This year’s First Aid Meet will be run like a Klondike Derby.
The 2018 First Aid Meet will continue a great tradition of Frontier District activities and the
Activities Committee is working hard to make the event exciting, challenging and include new items
suggested by Scouts and Leaders. We know November can be busy with Scouting for Food,
Thanksgiving, Recruiting, and completing JTE forms as well as your monthly activities and so the First Aid
Meet will be conducted in October this year.
Registration will be 7:45am until 8:15am. This year’s Meet will be held outdoors. Four scenarios
will be presented for the Patrols to demonstrate how to conduct appropriate First Aid techniques listed in
the Scout Handbook. The Patrols will be judged on their conduct and proper method for solving the
Scenarios
This guide will help to understand the event and the registration process. Please be aware of the
role adults have with other Patrols once the Meet begins. This will be a Scout event conducted on a
Patrol basis and since each Troop is expected to provide two-deep adult leadership at the First Aid Meet,
as required under the Scouting guidelines, we need the help of these adult leaders as trained judges. As
we do each year, we require one volunteer judge for each participating Patrol. To have the best
opportunity for an objective and fair environment for all our scouts we request judges to attend a
Judges’ Meeting the 30 minutes prior to the October Roundtable meeting on Wednesday,
October 10th, at 7:00pm at the Kutztown Armory in Kutztown, PA. If your judge cannot make the
meeting, please call me directly.
Please feel free to ask questions prior to the event and please feel free to contact either District
Executive Steven Gehris at (610) 926-3406 (Council Service Center) with administrative questions or
myself with event questions at (717) 314-8370. And having your Patrols prepared will go a long way to
help to make this a truly fun event for everyone!
Yours in Scouting,

Oley Fairgrounds, 26 Jefferson St. Oley, PA 19547
PURPOSE:
The purpose of this Meet is to develop leadership, create team
participation, measure first aid proficiency with an attitude of good
sportsmanship, and to teach new methodologies and information.
ELIGIBILITY:
All registered Boy Scouts under the age of 18 years of age are eligible to
participate. Webelos Scouts are invited to be ‘victims’ if Patrols do not
have enough Boy Scouts (and they’ll have fun too!). Using a Webelos
Scout you brought improves your score for scenarios.
PATROLS:
Patrols for the Meet may consist of 5 to 10 members, including the
"victim." If possible, these teams should represent natural Patrols. There
is no limit to the number of Patrols that a Troop may enter. All Scouts
should be in uniform and must wear soft-soled shoes or sneakers.
EQUIPMENT:
1. Every Scouts needs a Back Pack and packed like they are going on an
overnight campout
2. Nitrile or latex gloves must be a part of each first aid kit and must be
worn when treating bleeding cases. This requirement cannot be
improvised.
3. Plastic goggles must also be a part of each first aid kit and must be
worn when treating bleeding cases. Only first aid treaters directly
treating the bleeding segment of the problems need to wear gloves
and goggles.
4. Articles of clothing may be used for padding.
5. Neckerchiefs, neckties, and other similar clothing may be used for tying
splints.
6. Two filled 1-liter water bottles (e.g. Nalgenes)
7. Personal First Aid Kit
8 The Patrol must figure out how to bring the Patrol/Troop First Aid Kit
without having to carry a big kit along .
9 Scouts must bring Sunscreen and or Bug Spray
10 Each Patrol must have a Current Scout Handbook, Field Guide or a
First Aid Merit Badge book.
11 Patrols need a writing instrument and paper to taking note
12 Each Scout has to bring a bag lunch and a snack
13. After the SPL registers/checks-in his unit, the whole Patrol will report
to Patrol Inspection to see if they have everything
14 Poles will be provided.
15. Injured victims will be provided for two scenarios, but the patrol must
bring along volunteers to serve as its own injured or sick victims. We
recommend working with your pack to identify volunteers from a
Webelos den.
`
SCENARIOS:
Each problem will be based on the first aid requirements for the First Aid
Merit Badge. The latest edition of the official Boy Scout Handbook and
the First Aid Merit Badge pamphlet will be the authority for each problem
and the decision of the Chief Judge will be final. All judges will use a
uniform scoring system and will be rotated to different teams for each of
the scenarios. A graduated scoring system will be used (1, 3, or 5 points)
to earn credit for partially correct answers. Coaching from the sidelines
will disqualify any Patrol at the judge's discretion. Using a Webelos Scout
you brought as a ‘victim’ improves your score by 1 point.
FLAGS:
Troops and Patrols may bring flags to the Meet.

ADVANCED REGISTRATION IS A MUST! Online registration on the
www.hmc-bsa.org calendar is encouraged. A registration form is attached
if needed. The registration fee of $10.00 per Scout must accompany the

his unit. Special emphasis and scoring will be placed on the Patrol
Leader's leadership abilities.

RECOGNITION:
The Meet is NOT a competition among Patrols, it is meant as a fun
measure of each Patrol's level of first aid proficiency. However, we
believe that achievement should be recognized, so the Top 5 patrols will
receive awards.

providing a judge for each Patrol Team and for ensuring their attendance
at the Judges' Meeting on October 10th. The preferred qualification for

utilizing local ambulance counselors, Troop Committee members, and
parents. Judges WILL NOT judge their own Unit’s Patrol. Judges will
judge no more than two scenarios for a given patrol. Judges should arrive
no later than 8am on the day of the Meet.
