Several Boy Scout troops will take part in an emergency preparedness merit badge workshop at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center to handle any situation.
By: Clearwater Community Volunteers
The workshop will start at 1:30 p.m. with complimentary light refreshments being served before moving into the main battery of requirements.
"In life, an emergency can occur but if you're prepared and know how to handle it you can drastically reduce the potential for disaster to nothing." said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. "The Scouts are known for their capacity to handle most anything and it's with the help of trained professionals that the boys can learn vital talents they can use for the rest of their lives."
This event is part of a series of Merit Badge educational opportunities for Scouts.
A certified Merit Badge Counselor will show the boys how to effectively handle situations such as automobile accidents and kitchen fires while demonstrating proper safety precautions for oneself and others in these types of situations. In another part of the workshop the boys will enlighten their family members on assembling an emergency supply kit for natural disasters like a hurricane.
The CCV center provides its facilities as a no-cost meeting space and event venue to volunteer organizations and non-profits like the BSA in an effort to promote the growth of community oriented groups.
