BOY SCOUTS MERIT BADGE SESSIONS

Saturday, October 30, 2021 – $40 per scout/session
Morning and afternoon refreshments provided. Lunch on your own.

FIRST AID WITH CPR | 9AM – 12PM

First Aid – Caring for injured or ill persons until they can receive professional medical care – is an important skill for every Scout. With some knowledge of first aid, a Scout can provide immediate care and help to someone who is hurt or who becomes ill. First aid can help prevent infection and serious loss of blood. It could even save a limb or a life. CPR training will also be included.

CRIME PREVENTION AND FINGER PRINTING COMBO | 9AM – 12PM

Crime Prevention – Preventing crime, which can be as simple as reducing the opportunities for crime to occur, is far less costly than apprehending and bringing legal action against those who break the law and it helps save people from the anguish of being victims.
 
Fingerprinting – In completing this merit badge, you’ll learn about the history of fingerprinting, how fingerprints are used for security purposes, the science behind your own fingerprints, and the different categories of fingerprints that exist. You’ll also learn how to take your own fingerprints and record these results on a fingerprinting card.

SAFETY AND PUBLIC HEALTH COMBO | 1:30PM – 4:30PM

Safety – Knowing about safety helps Scouts to make the right choices and to take the best actions to avoid accidents by making informed choices in their everyday activities and to respond appropriately during an emergency situation.
 
Public Health – The field of public health deals with maintaining and monitoring the health of communities, and with the detection, cure, and prevention of health risks and diseases. Although public health is generally seen as a community-oriented service, it actually starts with the individual. From a single individual to the family unit to the smallest isolated rural town to the worldwide global community, one person can influence the health of many.

FIRE SAFETY | 1:30PM – 4:30PM

Fire SafetyThe ability to use fire safely is essential to human survival. By earning this merit badge, Scouts will learn to use fire safely and responsibly, how to prevent home fires, and how to handle fire safely, as well as burn prevention, and camping safety.

The EMS PRO Expo is a great environment to earn merit badges while surrounded by EMS, Fire, Police, and Emergency Management personnel from all around the world. Scouts will be supplied morning, mid-morning, and afternoon refreshments. Scouts will also have time to explore the EMS PRO Expo Exhibit Hall filled with emergency vehicles as well as 90+ vendors. All scouts must be accompanied by a troop leader or adult. Scouts will not be allowed to walk around unaccompanied for their safety. 

Space fills up fast – sign up now, the deadline is October 18, 2021. Prerequisites will be released by October 15th.
