Local Girl Scout Troop #313 and Boy Scout Troop #597 attended "Emergency Personnel Night" at the Chalybeate Fire Department on Tuesday, Sept 19th, as they learned about the aspects of local emergency offices and watched a demonstration by an emergency helicopter, which landed at the fire department.
The event was organized by Girl Scout Troop leader Melissa Johnson and the contributing members of local emergency personnel included: Chalybeate Volunteer Fire Department, Air Methods, Edmonson County Jaws, Edmonson County Ambulance Service, Edmonson County Sheriff's Office and K-9 Unit, and the Brownsville Police Department.
Each group presented hands-on demonstrations for the scouts and information about specific services that each department provided. The scouts took a tour of the helicopter and ambulance while they wrapped things up by watching K-9 Unit, Tango, demonstrate how he assists with finding drugs and catching "bad guys."
