First Aid Crew Gives a Lesson at a Waynesboro Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

Kids got to meet some real life emergency responders Thursday in the valley.

The Waynesboro First Aid Crew talked to the Boys and Girls Club and Cub Scouts Thursday afternoon at William Perry Elementary School. The kids saw up close what the inside of an ambulance looks like, and EMS crews told the kids about basic first aid and calling 911.

Cubmaster Chuck Hutchinson said it's a lesson best taught by the emergency crews.

"They see me once a week in the Cub Scout uniform and they think it's almost recess time," Hutchinson said. "But when a first responder comes in in their uniform, that's probably the first time that most of the kids have seen them so it's all attention towards the individual."

The kids also learned about allergies and heat stroke and what signs to watch for.
