GS Troop 447 News
Troop 447 Juniors completed the Be Prepared, Not Scared patch series and segments mostly through online meetings. They learned and discovered ways to be prepared for natural disasters in the US. This included segments in preparation of Emergency water sources, food, shelter, communication, light sources, animal care, mutual aid and first aid, including emergency plans for fire and travel.
During one online meeting Navy Veteran, former Barrington resident and dog trainer, John Devine, helped Troop 447 girls learn more about how to prepare a pet for emergency situations. Girls learned how laws changed to protect animals in emergency situations due to the abandonment of animals during Hurricane Katrina.
Troop 447 has been happy to be able to meet in person again.
