Montevallo Troop Prepares for Natural Disaster

Girl Scout Troop 21 of Montevallo received the Silver Award for their project “Emergency Preparedness.” The Girl Scouts, Katie, Quinn, Jessyca and Serena, wanted to supply the community with information on what to do in an event of a natural disaster. The troop set up booths at local stores including PetSmart and passed out FEMA brochures to customers. The brochures outlined the correct procedures to take in case of a regional emergency.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. This award symbolizes a Girl Scout Cadette’s accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works to better her life and the lives of others..
