Pack 4 Riverside Cub Scouts
Ocean State Search And Rescue (OSSAR) visited with the Pack 4 Riverside Cub Scouts during their November Pack Meeting. The Scouts watched a short movie "Lost In The Woods… But Found Safe And Sound" before meeting Golden Retriever "Samantha" and Pit Bull "X", two highly trained Search and Rescue dogs. Samantha and X are certified air scent dogs. The OSSAR team then taught the Scouts some important survival skills, should they ever get lost or separated from their family/group. OSSAR's mission is to work with the Rhode Island State Police and the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency using their search and rescue skills to locate missing persons within the state of Rhode Island. They are a non-profit organization, made up of volunteers. The services they provide are invaluable as they work hard to provide positive outcomes for families of missing loved ones.
The OSSAR's presentation was a great learning experience for the Cub Scouts and we are thankful that they were able to make the time to come out and visit with our Pack!
