On Saturday, Cub Scout Pack 300 hosted an Emergency Preparedness Day at their building in Leesburg
The purpose of the event was to allow scouts, and any and all members of the public, an opportunity to interact with the community’s first responders to learn more about what they do on a day-to-day basis – and have a better understanding about the role they play in our lives.
Members of Floyd EMS, the Cherokee County Emergency Management Agency, Cherokee County Rescue Squad, Cherokee County Deputies, Alabama State Troopers, and members of the Leesburg Police Department with their K-9 Unit along with members of the Tucker’s Chapel and other Fire Departments, Mayor of Leesburg and others were all in attendance.
Scouts came up with the idea for the project as a way to meet various requirements for different achievements and awards they earn.
