Lyme Ambulance Association Helps Brownies Earn First Aid Badge

Members of the Lyme Ambulance Association met with Brownies Girl Scout Troop 67974 from Lyme-Old Lyme to teach the girls about first aid, 911 calls and how to act in case of emergencies. EMR/Driver Erik Eisensmith and Deputy Chief Ariana Eaton brought an ambulance, showed the tools and equipment they carry to help the community, and explained what the different colors of lights mean in emergency vehicles.  All of these helped the girls to earn their first aid badge.
