One of the core values of The Boy Scouts of America is to do your best to help other people at all times. Heimlich Heroes™ is the perfect way to train your Cub Scouts and Webelos to recognize and respond to a choking emergency. It only takes an hour and is easily facilitated by your Scout Master and older Boy Scouts. In the past 8 months four kids trained through Heimlich Heroes have saved lives of friends or family members who were choking.
