BEDFORD, NH – Learn to be prepared, stay safe, eat healthy! Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains invites girls and their families to Be Safe, Stay Healthy, a badge blast day, on Saturday, June 19. Not a Girl Scout yet? This is a chance to learn about Girl Scouting and participate in activities that teach how to stay safe and be smart in a variety of situations.

Girls of all ages can learn about stranger danger, first aid, fire safety, self defense, healthy eating, and more. Girl Scouts may earn badges, a pin or a patch.

“The American Red Cross is proud to partner with the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains to bring lifesaving skills training to our youth,” said Stephanie Couturier, CEO of the American Red Cross of Northern New England.” Whether it’s knowing how to safely escape a home fire or administering CPR to someone in distress, we hope this training will empower our young people to feel more confident in the face of an emergency.”

Along with the Red Cross, some of the presenters include the New Hampshire State Fire Marshall with their fire command trailer, Manchester Karate with self-defense demos, Nutrition in Motion, Trooper Perreault from D.A.R.E., and Tick Free NH.

To get the full experience, registration is encouraged, but walk-ups are welcome, too. Registration is $9 for a girl and her family, and provides the opportunity to participate in all the activities. Register at Be Safe, Be Healthy takes place from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 1 Commerce Drive, Bedford. This is an outdoor event at the council office; rain date to be determined.
