The Three Rivers Medical Reserve Corps, a local unit of volunteers who work to build public health infrastructures in communities, has given scouts in Colonial Beach instruction on emergency preparedness.
Three Rivers Medical Reserve Corps Coordinator Valerie Prince and volunteer Kathryn Miller met with Colonial Beach Boy Scout Troop 258 and the Webelos Cub Pack 258 at the Colonial Beach Baptist Church.
The scouts were taught emergency preparedness to help prepare them and their families for any future emergency or disaster situation. Each scout was given a free emergency kit backpack and urged to help their families “make a plan and stay informed” in the event of an emergency.
