An emergency can happen anytime. What would you do in case of an emergency? Bring the family along to this safety expo where you will meet local police, fire and EMS responders. You’ll get to tour the rigs, learn basic first aid, make your own first aid kit to take home, discover what to do during severe weather, meet a disaster response team, learn basic self defense and more! This is a serious topic but a super fun, hands-on program where you’ll learn a lot. It’s expo-style with some scheduled presentations. Each participant gets a canvas bag for all the goodies and info you’ll pick up. Girl Scout Daisies will work on their Safety Award and earn the Gerri the Geranium petal. Girl Scout Brownies will work on their Safety Award and earn their First Aid Badge. Girl Scout Juniors will work on their Safety Award and complete three steps of their First Aid Badge.
