Scouting Organizations Can Earn a Patch and Learn to Save a Life

A staple of many scouting organizations is teaching their members first-aid. Another is earning badges.

Did you know you can use the Heimlich Heroes program to help your scouting troop earn their emergency preparedness or first-aid badge? The Heimlich Maneuver is a critical piece of training for young people.

Many scouting groups have used this life-saving program to help members earn a first-aid badge and a Heimlich Heroes patch. Some groups have even used it in conjunction with other first-aid education, working with their local fire department and paramedics to also teach kids about fire safety, 9-1-1 calls, and how to prevent and treat minor injuries.

Heimlich Heroes for kids is perfect for grades 1-7 and Heimlich Heroes for Teens and Adults is designed for those in grade 8 and older. Our programs are fun, educational and interactive. We prepare and teach youth how to successfully handle a choking emergency and give them the confidence to save a life!

The Heimlich Heroes patch is a great way for young kids to show off their new knowledge. Kids are able and capable, and we want to equip them to save a life. You can purchase patches for you troop in our store.

Your scouting organization can equip kids to save a life and help them earn a Heimlich Heroes patch!
