The Tuesday night beaver lodge spent the evening learning first aid from a group of trainee doctors (Monday night lodge to have training night early next year). The Beavers were taught how to put someone into the recovery position, what to do if they found someone ill, how basic CPR was performed (on the dummies only) and how to bandage a wound on the arm or leg.
They worked in groups practicing the skills they were taught on one another. Some challenging questions were posed to the trainee doctors. One beaver suggested "taking anyone they found with a bad cut to the (school) office"! All are now fully trained mini doctors.
