Troop 91's Annual
"Come As Your Favorite Disaster" First Aid Party
At Troop 91 each year we have a "Disaster First Aid Party" in which the Scouts are encouraged to come as their favorite disaster. They are to include a story on how it happened and they must be prepared to confirm or deny what the suggested triage and first aid should be for the event. It gives them a chance to practice Moulage and have a Halloween Party that is a bit different than the ordinary ones.
Check out the Photo albums for a few year's worth of great Moulage costumes.

More Moulage Info:
Moulage is the making of fake wounds and situations for First Aid exercises.
It is great fun and can be very dramatic!
Moulage Powerpoint at Etowah Creek District Roundtable
Moulage (Special Gore Effects) at Etowah Creek Roundtable (2007-08 Powerpoint) In 2007-08 I did an extensive presentation on Moulage for several months at our Etowah Creek District Roundtable. Troop 91 features prominently in this Powerpoint and it is a lot of fun with some good ideas on how to make your own blood-and-guts Moulage without paying the Party Stores an arm and a leg.
