Scout families,

Our Bear den 8 would like to invite all Pack 1776 Scouts to the ReadyPerson training for Scouts at the San Ramon Valley Fire Department on Thursday 1/27.  If you are interested, let us know by this Wednesday noon.  That is, you have slightly more than 2 days to reply.  This is how much time the Fire Department will need to prepare material for everyone.

The curriculum meets all requirements for the Webelos ReadyMan badge. It is also a great opportunity to fulfill a go-see-it requirement for the Tiger (2G) and Wolf (4F) ranks.  As always, this is not a drop off event.  Parent participation is required.  More information of the program below.  Send questions to John & Ammy Pluth.

The Scout "ReadyPeople" program lasts approximately 1 hour. Scouts will be given a packet with useful safety information and have a chance to engage in hands-on training exercises. The class covers the following topics:

* Fire District overview
* Recognizing an emergency
* Breathing emergencies
* Controlling bleeding
* Helping a poison victim & a choking victim
* Helping a heart-attack victim
* Fire safety

Fire Safety Assignment

As part of the training program, all attending scouts are asked to complete a fire safety assignment BEFORE attending the class. Please have each scout draw a fire escape plan for their home. The plan should include arrows showing the ways out of each room, their meeting stop outside the home, and for multiple story homes each floor should be mapped out separately. Graph paper is recommended, however, white paper is also acceptable. (See example here) Please turn these assignments in the day of the course.

On the day of our class, we are going to gather our den in the parking lot and the den leader will let the staff know we arrived. The instructor will meet our group outside and guide the group to our classroom. Please remember there is no eating or drinking allowed during the training.
