First Aid Point
Chirurgeon in Charge -
Dom. Galefridus Peregrinus,
First Aid Point (also known as Chirurgeons' Point), is located at the corner of Brewer's Road and St. Lawrence Way.
We will be open 8:00 am – 8:00 pm.
EMS will be available at the point 24 hours a day, and can also be accessed by dialing 911
and notifying dispatch that you are at Cooper's Lake Campground in Slippery Rock Township.
If you are a warranted Chirurgeon and would like to volunteer: please stop by with the required paperwork (first aid/CPR certs, proof of SCA membership, legal ID)
and we'll get you up and running.
If you are not a warranted Chirurgeon and would like to work as a non-medical volunteer (assist with record keeping, supply inventory, housekeeping, and other tasks), please stop in.
If you are not a warranted Chirurgeon, but would like to become one: you will need the appropriate first aid/CPR certs, proof of SCA membership, legal ID and the approval of your Kingdom Chirurgeon or his/her designee. Chirurgeons-in-Training who are already listed on their Kingdom's roster may work shifts at Point under the supervision of a warranted Chirurgeon.
The following documents detail the official policies and procedures to be followed by volunteers at First Aid Point.
They will also be available at the Point during Pennsic:
Minors cannot be treated for non life-threatening injuries unless a parent or court-appointed legal guardian is physically
present and gives consent. Waivers to treat minors that have been signed in advance are not valid
in the state of
Pennsylvania and will not be accepted.
For those with Existing Medical Conditions
If you have a medical condition that emergency responders should be aware of, we strongly recommend that you wear at all
times a commercially available Medical Alert Tag that is appropriate to your condition.
Suggestions for a safe and healthy Pennsic:
- Hydrate often with non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic liquids.
- Apply sunscreen often.
- Dress appropriately for different weather conditions.
- On cold nights, wear a cap to bed to reduce heat loss through your scalp.
- Wear sturdy and comfortable footgear with ankle support (especially important for combatants)
- Carry emergency medications with you.
- Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize; this includes food preparation and frequent hand-washing.
- Keep lids closed on toilets to discourage disease-carrying flies.
- Plan ahead, bring plenty of any current medications you need, and drink plenty of water.
While we welcome you to stop by First Aid Point, we prefer a social call over business.
for reference - info from past Pennsics:
We are always in need of volunteers, including both Chirurgeons and Non-Medical Volunteers.
Non-medical Volunteers assist with record keeping, supply inventory, housekeeping, and other tasks.
Visit our Volunteer Coordinator at the First Aid Point if you are interested in being a Non-medical Volunteer or sign up in the "Help Offered” book at Information Point.
As in past years, we will be offering First Aid, CPR, and other related classes. They will be listed in the main class schedule under
"Health & Safety."
