Chemical Fuels and Equipment

Do you know how to safely store, handle, and use chemical fuels and equipment?  Are you aware of the updated Boys Scouts of America policy on the storage, handling, and use of chemical fuels and equipment?

Many campers are moving away from traditional outdoor campfires in favor of chemical-fueled equipment for cooking, heating, and lighting. However, chemical fuels and equipment create very different hazards than traditional wood, charcoal, and other solid fuels.   Please take a moment and be up to date on our policies. 

The policy is here as a pdf for your use or to distribute at your next unit, district or council meeting.
