– Girls from Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast council learned what to do when the unexpected happens during a first aid skill-building session at summer day camp being held this week in Heilmann Park.

Following the Girl Scout motto to ‘Be Prepared,’ girls from kindergarten Daisy age-level to Cadette Girl Scouts learned how to get help from 911, make a first aid kit, and treat minor injuries with the assistance of Girl Scout volunteer and Twin Cities Hospital emergency room nurse Jessica Oliveira.

Twin Cities also donated bandages, rolls of tape, gauze squares, and packets of Polysporin for the skill-building session.

In Girl Scouts, girls at every level have the opportunity to earn the First Aid Legacy Badge. Requirements include role-playing how to call 911 and what to say, interviewing someone who treats injured people, making a first aid kit, learning how to treat minor injuries, and knowing how to prevent and treat outdoor injuries. Earning the Girl Scout First Aid Badge is one of the opportunities for girls identified by Juliette Gordon Low when she founded Girl Scouting in 1912.
