Washington Engine Cub Scout Thank You
Tiger Dens 1 and 4 of Croton-on-Hudson Cub Scout Pack 28 would like to thank the volunteer members of our Washington Engine Co. #2 and our Croton-on-Hudson EMS volunteers for a very informative evening together. Washington Engine opened its doors to approximately 20 first grade Tigers, as well as their siblings and parents, and provided an interactive discussion about how they help people in our community. They discussed the rigorous training requirements, the flexibility they need to be on call, the types of calls they go on and what it feels like to help other people.
After the presentation, the Scouts were provided with a tour of the firehouse as well as an introduction to the special equipment our volunteers utilize. The Scouts were able to enter an ambulance and take turns on the stretcher, sit in the fire trucks and experience the volume of the sirens. They also learned about some of the special medical equipment that is utilized by our EMS volunteers. A special treat was when two of the Washington Engine volunteers suited up in full gear and showed the Scouts the importance of each piece they wear, and most importantly, not to be afraid of the volunteers in uniform…if you see them, they are there to help you!
Thank you Washington Engine Co. #2 and Croton-on-Hudson EMS! Not only for our fabulous evening together, but for all you do to keep us safe in our Croton community!
