Everyone should write first aid protocols…. Or you could just buy a first aid book!

Why does everyone in the outdoor industry continuously want to reinvent the wheel?

I received an email asking if they should write first aid protocols for the program. I answered no; it is a violation of someone’s copyright!

Everything you need has been written down by someone, why start from scratch. There are dozens of books on Amazon, that talk/teach/explain first aid. Don’t write first aid rules, buy a book. Buy several books and hand them out to your staff.

The books are written correctly most of the time and don’t violate the law, most protocols, I’ve seen if they do not violate the law, they march through the gray area.

On top of that remember, there are no first aid protocols in most states, unless you are a licensed health care provider, and in communication with a physician. Protocols do not exist, unless you are licensed and have no legal or medical value.

See: Letter to the editor: Camp Business to understand the first aid protocols issue.
