Readyman Badge for Webelos
You never know when you will be called upon to help someone in an emergency -- at the store, while hiking, babysitting, or elsewhere. The Readyman activity badge is designed to help the Webelos get ready for these emergencies. Youth and children are not too young to help others!
This is basic first aid that is designed to help children know and understand the different types of emergencies and how to deal with them. It is based on the Webelos guide book, and will explain what first aid is, how to get help quickly, and how to take care of emergencies as they happen. The class will show how to treat for shock, and how to care for people with cuts and scratches, burns, bites and stings, and choking. This class will cover many topics including swimming safety, biking safety and setting up a home fire escape plan.
This class takes about 2 hours to complete and is available to North Aurora Troops.
