Each and every one of the estimated 43,000 Scouts and leaders expected in attendance at the 2010 National Scout Jamboree are invited to participate in an event attempting to break the World Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillation (AED) training record. Not only will participants be able to stake their claim as being part of this historic event, but they will return home with the ability to perform these life-saving skills in their communities if ever called upon.
This once in a lifetime opportunity will take place on July 29, 2010 from 8:00 AM – 9:00 PM at the Fort A.P. Hill Arena. Thirteen separate group training sessions will be conducted and will begin promptly at each hour mark. Participants will be issued nationally-recognized CPR & AED course completion cards from the Emergency Care and Safety Institute.
Stay tuned to Boy Scouts of America‘s email notifications for further information. A website dedicated to this World record-breaking event is available at
Laerdal Medical has graciously donated 2,500 “Jamboree Edition” personal manikin kits to be used for on-site training. In addition, Laerdal is extending a special event purchase price to Jamboree attendees for only $19.00. Now, Scouts can practice the life-saving skills of CPR they’ve learned at the Jamboree and help teach other family members when returning home. Strengthen the chain of survival in your community!
