To ensure the safety and well-being of all girls, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio requires troops to be accompanied by someone currently certified in Adult/Child CPR/AED and Standard First Aid for any activity or trip beyond their regular meeting site, any physically demanding activity and all overnight trips. If a registered adult with the troop is a nurse (RN/LPN), a certified emergency medical technician or a doctor, they can serve as the troop’s “First Aider,” otherwise a troop leader or other registered adult will need to become certified.
Girl Scouts of Western Ohio is an authorized provider of the American Red Cross and provides several scheduled First Aid/CPR training courses throughout the year to accommodate our volunteers. All First Aid/CPR courses do require strenuous physical activity during the skills practice portion, but accommodations can be made as long as the class participant is still able to perform the required skill. To discuss any physical limitations and possible accommodations, please contact your regional Girl Scout Center.
Certification is not required to be obtained through Girl Scout course offerings. However, if certification is obtained through outside agencies, please submit proof of certification and expiration information to your regional Girl Scout Center.
All courses offered by Girl Scouts of Western Ohio require a fee of $15 per participant.
