Safety

Somebody once asked Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, what exactly Scouts should “be prepared” for. “Why, for any old thing,” B-P replied. Safety is a way you can be prepared for any old thing that comes your way.

Safety is more than a set of rules. It’s an attitude that makes you aware of potential problems so that you can prevent them. A police officer notices something suspicious about a car. A Scoutmaster sees that a pot of boiling water is close to tipping over. A Scout realizes that his family doesn’t have an escape plan at home. Those little acts can help prevent major catastrophes—all because someone was prepared.

This month’s meetings and main event will introduce you to several aspects of safety. You’ll learn about safety in the home, on outings, and in public. You’ll make the places safer where you spend time. And you’ll connect with professionals who help make your community a safer place to live.
