Philmont has rescinded its change to the the First Aid training requirement
for 2007. As in previous years, 2007 crews will be required to have one participant in each crew
currently certified in Red Cross Standard First Aid (or equivalent) and one
participant in each crew be currently certified in CPR.
Philmont had planned to change the
requirement from Standard to Wilderness First Aid but the American Red
Cross was unable to provide enough courses nationwide to fulfill the needs.
The Wilderness First Aid course is strongly recommended because it does a
significantly better job of preparing you for the backcountry, wilderness
environment of your Philmont Trek. Because Wilderness First aid is a
superset of Standard First Aid, being certified in it more than fulfills
Philmont's requirement. Information on the Wilderness First Aid course being taught this
fall by the Capitol Area Council may be found by clicking the button below:
This website is an ongoing project. Look at it often for updated
information! As we get closer to the actual trek dates, changes will
occur more frequently.
