On Saturday, March 25, 2017 medical students from Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine will host a Boy Scout First Aid Meet. From 9am until noon, over 200 Scouts from Lackawanna and Wayne Counties will be in attendance to show off their First Aid and Emergency Preparedness skills in twenty different real life scenarios. Scouts will have five minutes to complete each of the scenarios while the medical students act as judges offering their knowledgeable medical guidance.
Being prepared for situations in which First Aid training is required is a sign of a good Boy Scout. Whether in the wilderness outdoors or a large city, situations will come up where First Aid training may make the difference between life and death. Safety is a major training portion of the Boy Scouts and that includes recovery as well as prevention.
