Revision as of 17:39, April 21, 2009

First Aid Treatments offers over 100 resources for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Ventures. First Aid links include the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, American Academy of Family Practitioners (AAFP), WebMD, About.com, Expert Village (EVVideo), and ProFirstAid (PFAVideo). Please note that the only first aid materials recommended by the Boy Scouts of America are those found or listed in official BSA materials. First Aid Treatments are constantly being revised. See the current First Aid Merit Badge Book and Boy Scout Handbook for much more information. Neither MeritBadge.Org, nor its contributors make any recommendations: see the Disclaimers.
