Episode 18 - MedVents (Medical Venturers)
From scouts.ca: “Medical Venturers — often called Medvents — are [Venturer] Companies sponsored by local Emergency Medical Services. Medvents receive increasingly advanced medical training over the course of the program. Their training is put to good use providing volunteer First Aid support at Scout camps and charitable events.”
Colin is absent this week, as is Brian, but we are happy to be joined by Erik Atkinson, one of the advisers of the Northern Lights Medical Venturers Company; we discuss the history of MedVents, and what this Vocational Scouting program entails.
Also referenced in this episode: “Medvents.ca is a site maintained by the 1st Downsview Group which provides more information on Medical Venturers.”
Firstly, a shout-out to Mark Burge, who interacts with us on Twitter now and again. And to Ken Rachynski as well, who thanked us last week for linking a story about how to choose a good knife.
Two additional shout-outs go out to Home Depot and Cashway Lumber, the latter in Leander, Texas. Home Depot gave Trevor — the son of podcast contributor Brian — a very steep discount on his first purchase of materials for his Eagle Scout project. And Cashway Lumber gave Trevor an almost 2/3 discount on the remainder of the supplies needed for the project.
