Junior First Aid Badge

Section 7. Helping Hands

 

First aid skills are important in many careers. Identify the types of emergencies each of these professionals might encounter on their jobs: camp director, police officer, firefighter, teacher, lifeguard, and emergency medical technician.

 

Well, use your imaginations, girls!

Make a list!

 

What special first aid training do their jobs require?

 

Go to the following websites. If you don't find what you are looking for immediately, scroll down and see if you can find an appropriate heading. If you still can't find anything, hit Ctrl F. This will open a window that says 'Find in this page'. Type first aid in the box and click in the 'Find Next" button. This should take you to a place where you can find the answer. Take notes.

Look at the results carefully - find out whether all the websites require similar qualifications. If not, why not. Are there any deductions you can make from what you find (I'm thinking about the firefighter section especially, here)?
