Emergency Preparedness Troop Program Feature

Emergency Preparednes Troop Program Feature

Our Scout motto, “Be Prepared” is never more important than in dealing with emergency situations. The ability to make correct decisions under pressure really tests a Scout. As Scouts progress through the program, they perfect their skills in leadership, the outdoors, and working with people. Emergency preparedness means being prepared in all of these areas.

Focus on emergency preparedness procedures. Younger Scouts will work on first aid requirements for Tenderfoot through First Class. Experienced Scouts will concentrate on advanced skills and the First Aid and Emergency Preparedness merit badges.

The big event will be “The Real Thing” weekend. Patrols will face some realistic emergency situations requiring first aid, decision making, and teamwork.
