MeritBadge.Org offers over 200 First Aid Skills resources for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Ventures. Resources are from 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 such as the current First Aid Merit Badge Book and Boy Scout Handbook. First Aid Treatments are constantly being revised. Neither MeritBadge.Org, nor its contributors make any recommendations: see the Disclaimers.
