The artist, Takao, came and made up the "victims" prior to the start of the meeting. When they arrived, the Scouts had a variety of "wounds" to care for and learn to demonstrate first-aid skills. The troop even had an EMT/Eagle Scout on hand to supervise proper technique for dressing the wounds on the victims.
The wounds varied from road- rash to scrapes, cuts and gashes, broken bones, compound fractures, snake bite, an arrow in the eye, burns of varying severity, and a "rebar through the head" injury.
It was a very successful demonstration and the Scouts were able to experience hands-on first-aid care of wounds.
Troop 210 meets from 7:30 to 9 p.m. every Monday, except holidays, at the American Lutheran Church, 755 N. Whitnall Highway, Burbank. The troop is led by Scoutmaster William O'Leary. For information about joining the Boy Scout Program, call Verdugo Hills Council at (818) 243-6282.
