It would seem that this may not be a rumor after all. I checked with our Scout office today and it was confirmed. Just a little early as you would have it. Seems that requiring first aid and CPR certification is planned for the 2001 year. The Venture program will get it first with the Scouts to soon follow. As always, us folks in the trenchs and on this list seem to find out Scout stuff first.
Rumor or not, being certified in FA & CPR before taking boys on a campout seems like one of the better ideas that National has come up with as far as I'm concerned. The safety of the boys should always come first. I just wonder what took National so long.
