First Aid Training Event for Girl Scouts

On May 1, 2022, the Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department (TMFD) and Larchmont Volunteer Ambulance Corps (LVAC) hosted a first aid training event for the Girl Scouts of Larchmont-Mamaroneck.  Approximately sixty Girl Scouts from second through fifth grade learned how to activate 911 and assist patients with traumatic and medical emergencies. The girls spoke with first responders and explored the ambulance and fire apparatus. 


Each girl assembled her own first aid kit with supplies donated by Montefiore New Rochelle.  After the event, the girls expressed that they felt more confident about recognizing medical emergencies, using first aid supplies, and accessing equipment such as an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).  They enjoyed meeting the first responders and learning how they can continue to serve their community as adults.  


The event was coordinated by Girl Scout leader Dr. Kathryn Kirchoff-Torres in collaboration with Lt. Michael Cassidy of TMFD and LVAC President Kris Mueller.  The Girl Scouts of Larchmont-Mamaroneck would like to thank Ms. Angela Cermele, Manager of Special Projects at Montefiore New Rochelle, for her support in sponsoring this event.
