FRANKLIN, Tenn.—The Brownies of Middle Tennessee Girl Scout Troop 2975 spent an evening at Williamson Medical Center recently, learning how to respond in case of emergency.
Brownies of Troop 2975 practice administering first aid.
After having a conversation with one of WMC’s nursing staff, the Brownies set out to put what they learned into action. Each scout constructed their own first aid kit, complete with hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes, ointment, and bandages.
Once the kit was completed, the Brownies paired up and conducted first aid drills on each other; using the items to treat imaginary wounds.
All of this earned each girl their “Brownie First Aid’ badge.

“Not only are these scouts learning important skills but they are overcoming fears of the unknown,” Jen Gaulke, a Co-Troop Leader of Troop 2975, said.
“By being able to participate at their local hospital, they are increasing their familiarity with a place that may be uncomfortable and turning it into a safe and fun environment.”
