The Importance Of Knowledge

(Have an assistant leader enter the room with a bloody wound on his head. Use catsup or food coloring mixed with cold cream to make blood)

Scouts, we have a bad bleeding case here. I'd better fix him up. (Use neckerchief to make an arm sling on the assistant, ignoring the head wound. )

Well, I fixed him up pretty good, right? No? What's wrong? That's a pretty stupid mistake, isn't it? What should I have done? (Get answers).

The point we're making here is, that bad first aid is worse than no first aid at all. In first aid, you have to know what you're are doing. You don't have to be a doctor to do it right, but you do have to understand what the problem is and then take the proper action. That's what we're learning this month.

All of you know that the First Aid skill award is required for Second Class and the merit badge is required for First Class. So the subject is important for your advancement. But knowing first aid is important for its own sake, not just for advancement. That's why I hope every Scout in this troop become proficient in first aid this month.
