Events Created on 18 September 2014

Arrowmoon District Boy Scout First Aid Event

Scheduled for Saturday, October 25th from 9:00am-11:00am.

Location: 1651 Rock Prairie Road (2 story tan brick w/ green windows building across from the CS Medical Center)

Whose Invited:  All Boy Scout Patrols to participate and Cub Scout packs to help as volunteers

This year we are pleased to have a professional firefighter, Chris Kelly, College Station Battalion Chief, as our First Aid Meet Chair.   Through his efforts, we are pleased to announce that the Arrowmoon District will be having a First Aid Event with local first responders to help Scout Patrols prepare for the January Arrowmoon District First Aid-o-ree Boy Scout Competition Event.  The top two Patrols at the District Event in January will advance to participate in the SHAC First Aid Event held on February 14, 2015.  For more information see attached flyer and/or go to:

On Saturday, October 25, this event will run for 2 hours (9:00am to 11:00am) with a planned demonstration from local first responders on how the professionals would respond and treat a medical scenario. After that demonstration, individual troops/patrols will practice scenarios using each troop's own first aid kit (Please bring your First Aid Kit).  Cub Scouts will participate as injured personnel, etc. to facilitate the practice scenarios.  After the scenarios, all scouts will be able to view emergency vehicles and ask questions about how these vehicles are used.

The goal of this event is to encourage scout patrols to practice first aid skills, prepare for the January First Aid-o-ree and to have all scouts interact with local Fire and EMS personnel. 

Deadline to register for this event will be October 15th to ensure enough space and volunteers to assist with each scout patrol.  There is no cost.

In addition, Cub Scouts are encouraged to help in this event as injured personnel, etc. and to view the demonstrations.  This will be a great way to get your cub scouts excited about learning First Aid.

Please RSVP to Chris Kelly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  by October 15th if you would like to register your Patrol to participate in this event.  Additionally, if a Cub Scout Pack or any adults are interested in volunteering to help with the event, please contact Chris Kelly using the same email address.

We hope that all the Troops/Patrols will be able to participate.  This will be a great opportunity for your scouts to see First Aid in action at the professional level and get them excited about First Aid and participating in the First Aid competition.  

The Texas Skies District has won the SHAC First Aid Competition Event the last 3 years.  2015 should be Arrowmoon's year to win this event!!   So, let's get your Troops/Patrols preparing!!
