Huntington Community First Aid Explorer Post 215

The Huntington Community First Aid Explorer Post 215 was one of the many groups to be honored with a proclamation at Huntington’s Town Hall meeting on Tuesday night. This group of caring, young adults worked tirelessly outside local grocery stores during a Nor’Easter this past winter to collect 5,000 lbs of food donations for the Family Service League.  The Youth Squad was established as an Explorer Post under the auspices of the of the Learning for Life Program of the Boy Scouts of America, with the Huntington Community First Aid Squad serving as its chartering organization.  Each youth must have a desire to help others, must maintain a good grade point average in school, and must successfully complete American Red Cross Responding to Emergencies and American Red Cross CPR.
