Girl Scouts learn first aid skills

Cadets from Girl Scout Troop 4134 were given an opportunity to learn life-saving skills Sunday.

“The girls participated in the training receiving their First Aid Badge and Safety Pin,” said Debbie Schantz, Troop leader. “This will enable them to earn their baby sitting patch as they will have CPR training.”

The six-hour class was instructed by Brittany Wilson of Girls Scout Heart of Central California, and David Avera, Colusa Fire Lieutenant. The girls learned basic first aid skills.

“They had a bit of in-depth first aid training. Learning how to control bleeding, applying tourniquets, as well as CPR on adults and a small child,” said Avera. “They even learned how to handle a person in a choking situation.”

Avera delivered many First Aid kits donated by the Colusa Firefighters Association.

“We are lucky to have the help of our local fire association and cannot thank them enough for their support,” said Schantz. “The girls were excited to receive their first aid kits.”

First aid is one of the many life skills a girl scout can learn through the organization. Girl Scouts also learn money management, goal setting, decision making, and leadership skills.

Schantz added the troop is currently participating in its annual cookie sale fundraiser.

“Cookies will be in on Feb. 22,” said Schantz. “Contact your local group for more information.”

Schantz added that troop members will also be selling at various locations as well, details to come at a later date.
