We hosted the Cub Scout Pack 43 of West Decatur. A few members went over first aid with the scouts for various emergencies including severe bleeding, heart attack, strokes, snake bites, tick bites, shock, and cardiac arrest. It was amazing to find out what these scouts already knew pertaining to these emergencies. The scouts obtained their First Responder Badge last evening.
