Cub First Aid Day - Cubs can learn the first aid badge skills / knowledge from Venturers and Rovers. Medical Venturers and Rovers exist in many areas - these are Venturers and Rovers who are in a vocational / themed program focusing on careers in Emergency Medical Services and Paramedics. Medvents (for short) often run half or full day events that are open to the cubs in the area. This lets the youth in the Medvent program gain experience 'teaching' first aid and earn service hours for their program. York Region Medvents have Cub First Aid Day on February 4th in Newmarket, the Waterloo Medvents and Toronto Medvents also run days but I don't remember when it is. Often the program includes snacks and the first aid badge for the cubs. You can find the medvents at www.medvents.ca or email medvent.advisor@yahoo.ca
