On February 17, 2019, the Boys of Cornwall Scout Troop 118 attended a 7 hour intense first aid training session at the Cornwall Volunteer Ambulance Corps. This was arranged for the boy to earn their First Aid Merit Badge. The Scouts, led by Scout leaders Mat Kilgore and Michael Kizun were taught several subjects. This included CPR and automatic defibrillator operations. The boys also learned on how to treat minor and major wounds, how to stop serious bleeding , treating broken bones, how to treat someone in shock, environmental emergencies and allergenic reactions. Additionally, all of the boys underwent a practical skill session. This session had the boys demonstrate the skill they reviewed throughout the session. The boys were very interactive and articulate with our instructor staff
