Hello Scouters List,
I am the new Scoutmaster of our local Troop and have
just been informed that in the last week or so, a former
Eagle Scout (got eagle about 18 months ago) from our
troop saved his father using CPR. I don't have all the
details yet, but apparently his father collapsed at home
and the eagle scout provided CPR until the paramedics arrived.
His father claims that he is alive today because of his
sons involvment in Boy Scouts.
My question is: What do I do as the new Scoutmaster of
the boy's troop? Should I contact the family to get the
details and inform the local council office?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
