Making correct decisions under pressure can be difficult for anyone, but if Cub Scouts practice knowing when and how to call 911, basic first aid and other skills, they can be ready for emergency situations. February's Pack Meeting will teach Scouts the basics in wound care, when to call 911, and how to prepare for a disaster. Our younger scouts will also make art posters to give our first responders some new year cheer - a scout is cheerful! All attending scouts will receive an awesome emergency preparedness patch.

Station #4 - Helping Hands Art Activity (Lion/Tiger/Wolves)
Station #5 - Disaster Preparedness (Lion/Tiger/Wolves)
