Are You Weather Smart?
The Health and Safety and Risk Management Teams, who bring you Scouting Safely, have heard your request.
Planning and Preparing for Hazardous Weather is now available for you to do training in your unit, district, and council when an Internet connection is not available. This training is required for at least one leader before taking your unit on a tour, but more importantly, it is knowledge that we all can use to manage risks to our Scouting family in the outdoor classroom.
If you would like your own copy, the CD is available through your Scout shop or online at www.scoutstuff.org. Search for item 610642. Please note that the format of the training is set up for you to facilitate; just pop in the CD and play for the audience. It is suggested that units work with their district training chairs to make sure that Scouters have the completion of the training entered into their records.
The training takes about 40 minutes to complete and is both age-appropriate and recommended for all adult leaders and for youth in Boy Scout troops, Varsity Scout teams, or Venturing crews. The training is also available at www.scouting.org; just sign in to your MyScouting account.
