This evening we had the pleasure of providing a station tour to the CP Pack 48 Tiger Den 5 cub scouts. The scouts learned crucial information on fire safety including home escape plans, smoke alarms, and the various methods for contacting the emergency dispatch center and what information to provide to the call taker. We were happy to assist the scouts in earning their advancement in the “Safe & Smart” program. Huge thank you for gifting us some delicious brownies at the end of our presentation!
