Baton Rouge, La. – This past Sunday, October 15, three emergency responders from
Baton Rouge General spent time with Girl Scout Troop 10352. The 17 second
graders learned about basic first aid, trick-or-treating safety and instructions
for calling 9-1-1.
Popular activities included emergency technicians Brandon Droy, Brittany
Neal and Mack Perry giving the 7- and 8-year olds a guided ambulance tour
and simulating a 9-1-1 call, teaching the girls how and when to dial the
emergency number and what to say.
When asked about the day, 8-year-old Amalie Taylor called the paramedics
and EMT “real life heroes ‘cause they actually save people’s
