First Aid Training

Upon completion of a certified First Aid course given by a nationally recognized agency such as (but not limited to) St. John Ambulance, and the Red Cross, GGC-Québec Council will reimburse two-thirds of the cost of the training (for an active Unit Guider). Speak with your DC about holding a training session in your district.

It is the responsibility of the Guider to request an update to iMIS when First Aid & CPR certifications are obtained or renewed. To do this, mail a copy of your certification to the provincial office or scan and email it to the iMIS administrator.

 First Aid and Safe Guide Reminders

  • All First Aid qualifications must be entered into iMIS before your Safe Guide Activity!
  • Health care professionals wishing to act as a ‘First Aider’ must be licensed and insured in the province/territory where the activity is taking place.
  • First Aid kits:
    • A First Aid kit appropriate for the activity and environment must be on-hand for all activities, including regular Unit meetings. It should be identified using the Universal Sign of First Aid (see below). 
    • Remember, it is to contain NO medications, either prescription or over-the-counter, and NO sunscreen or bug repellent. These are to be provided by parents for Unit meetings and other activities, events or camps, along with a completed and signed H.3 form (Medication Plan and Administration Record)
  • The Universal Sign of First Aid: A red cross on a white background is a trademark of the Red Cross Organization and is protected by copyright, not unlike our Girl Guide Trefoil. Therefore a red cross should not be placed on a container to denote that it holds First Aid supplies. Instead, the Universal Sign of First Aid should be used. This sign is a white cross on a green background and should be used to designate a First Aid station, First Aid kit, or other First Aid-related item.
