Neighbors Emergency Center Copperfield to Help Local Girl Scouts Earn First Aid Badge
HOUSTON, Texas, March 8, 2017 – Excited to teach the fascinating components of emergency medical care, Neighbors Emergency Center Copperfield will sponsor a Teddy Bear ER for local Girl Scout Brownie Troop 110029 on Saturday, March 11 at 9 AM. Neighbors Emergency Center Copperfield is located at 5835 Hwy. 6 North, Houston, TX 77084. The center’s telephone number is 281-861-0937.
To help the Girl Scout Brownies earn their First Aid badge, the troop will learn about the need and value of freestanding emergency centers and what types of injuries or illnesses constitute an ER visit. They will also learn about the duties of doctors, nurses, radiology technicians and administrative staff at the center. Participants will learn how to properly put on a splint and also understand what items they should have in their first aid kits.
“We are hosting this special event because we feel teaching these young women proper technique and safety is very important,” said Neighbors Emergency Center Marketing Liaison Jennifer Futral. “Not only do we love to help our community, it also will give these girls and their parents a better understanding of who Neighbors is and what we can provide to them if a medical emergency ever arises.”
Each Brownie will be given their own Neighbors teddy bear “patient” to register and wristband with a sticker, triaged their “patient’s” symptoms and be instructed on basic first aid. The troop will tour the designated Pediatric Room where they will be able to practice their newly learned first aid skills. At the lesson’s conclusion, each Girl Scout will receive a Neighbors Emergency Center teddy bear “patient” to take home.
Another troop will also visit Neighbors Copperfield on March 25 at 9 AM. Troop 110109 represents the Fire Fly Trails Community in Houston.
This positive action is a direct link with Neighbors’ core values of having a genuine, compassionate heart; a creative spark; and a collaborative act delivered with a friendly smile.
