Emergency Prep

Doing Good Turns When They’re Needed Most

The Scout motto, “Be Prepared,” is never more important than in dealing with emergency situations. Sometimes, as in the case of a hurricane or winter storm, we have a chance to prepare for a coming
disaster. At other times, as with earthquakes and tornadoes, there is very little warning. By learning and practicing emergency skills, we can be ready whenever disaster strikes. The ability to make correct
decisions under pressure really puts your skills to the test.

This month’s activities will let you explore how skills in first aid, leadership, and other areas can come together in emergency situations. You will get a chance to practice emergency skills during the main event—and perhaps discover a vocation or avocation you can pursue for decades to come.
