As with most years and with most departments at Pennsic, we are always in need of volunteers. If your schedule does not permit you to work one of our usual 4-hour shifts, we will be delighted to work with you on a shorter shift or different times so that you can volunteer and still enjoy Pennsic.

Treatment of Minors

Chirurgeons/First Aiders cannot treat minors for non life-threating 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 Commonwealth 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 and that you carry emergency medication with you at all times. One of the smartest ideas we have ever seen was a small shoulder satchel with the words “Epi-Pen” embroidered in 3 inch high letters on the outside.

Over the Counter Medications

As in past years, over the counter medications or sunscreen will not be available at First Aid Point. The Cooper's Lake Camp Store carries a wide selection of over the counter medication and sunscreen.


As in past years, First Aid, CPR and other related classes will be offered by modern certifying agencies. They will be listed in the main class schedule under "Health & Safety."

Suggestions for a Safe and Healthy Pennsic
