My son is working on earning his Arrow of Light for Cub Scouts, and we've done the easy parts for the Readyman pin. However, we're now down to the four "practical" requirements of the pin (Heimlich maneuver, how to treat "hurry cases," how to treat shock, and showing first aid).
Since my husband is the den leader, it's up to us to figure out how to get this done. Neither my nor I feel comfortable enough doing this "practical" portion ourselves, because we don't know enough about some of these to be able to demonstrate them effectively.
I was thinking it would be appropriate to contact an EMT to help explain and demonstrate, but I'm not sure if I should be contacting the fire department or a local hospital to locate one and set something up. Any advice or suggestions?
