As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, Volunteers, Ambassadors are invited to the GSSEM Detroit Service Center on September 17 from 2-5 p.m. to learn about Emergency Preparedness. Girls will spend an enlightening and educational afternoon with the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division and additional first responders learning about emergency preparedness.
“Having basic knowledge about what to do, how to act, who to call during an emergency is beneficial for everyone,” said Dana Drew, director of Life Skills Programs for GSSEM. “You never know when that information will be needed to help save a life.” These skills will remain with the girls long after the program or even their Girl Scout career.
Participating Girl Scouts will also be able to meet and talk with a variety of emergency responders and other professionals about rewarding career opportunities available to young women.
Along with activities, presentations and games, girls make some special SWAP art special to the event.
Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. Being prepared will help make the world a better place.
Cost: $10 per girl and includes a fun patch and light snacks. Open to families and non-Girl Scouts.
