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 more ready for emergency situations. December's Pack Meeting's theme is to allow Scouts to build a basic first aid kit that may be useful on hikes, learn basic wound care, learn and practice when and how to call 911 on different types of phones and how to summon aid in the outdoors. All registered scouts will receive a pouch, simple first aid supplies, signal mirror and whistle.

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS: There are 4 stations that we need to staff, with adults and Den Chiefs using a written script to teach:

  1. Station #1 - Make a first aid kit / how to treat a cut or scrape on a hike
  2. Station #2 - When to call 911
  3. Station #3 - How to call 911
  4. Station #4 - How to prepare for a hike & what do when we are lost. SIGN UP HERE!

Following the meeting, Pinewood Derby Car Kits will be passed out. These are free to all registered Cub Scouts.

Adults and siblings are welcome to join in on the fun in their own special heats. Pinewood Derby Kits for family members are $5 each.
