Girl Scouts earn badges, pins on safety, first aid
Members of the junior Girl Scouts troop hosted daisies, brownies and juniors as they worked to earn their first aid badge and safety pin.
They all gathered at Ambush Park in Benson late last Friday afternoon with members of the Benson Fire Department, Benson Police Department and the CentraCare Ambulance services. All three provided demonstrations and information about what they do for the community.
Girl Scout Troop Leaders there, Reena Ollendick, Sonja Schwiderski, Sam Goulet, Katie Foley and Molly Gades helped the troop members complete the work needed to earn their badges and pins.
Girl Scouts learned about:
The most common injuries kids their age suffer at home and how to do a safety check around the house.
They were to have found out about three dangers in the house and visit with their families about how to lessen them. They were then to work with an adult to fix them.
Conducting an emergency evacuation drill of their home or the place where their Girl Scout group meets.
Find out how to read weather signs so they would know when to head indoors and get to safety.
Learn about bicycle safety and write down three things about why they are important.
Go on a hazard-identification walk in a local park or in their neighborhood and record where the trail was located and where they found potential hazards.
