Planning for an emergency is something that everyone should know how to do. Every home should also have a functional Emergency Plan and Emergency Evacuation Kit.
Our programs are designed to teach the basics of emergency planning.
These courses can be configured to your specifications and normally takes two to six hours, depending on what modules you would like to focus on. In addition, Scout groups may complete the Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge and will receive a follow-on session to complete the practical work at no extra charge. This session is designed to be conducted at a typical troop meeting and will include a Table Top Exercise at the conclusion.
The core areas of instruction are:
1. The Aspects of Emergency Preparedness.
2. Planning for specific types of emergencies that you could experience.
3. Accident Prevention.
4. How to conduct a Home Safety Inspection.
5. Emergency Rescue Techniques.
6. Emergency kits and how to build one.
7. Communicating with First Responders & Rescuers.
8. Rescue carries and moving injured persons.
9. Things you can do to assist during an emergency.
10. Local, State and Federal disaster agencies.
11. The role of the local Emergency Management Director.
12. Practical Exercise/Emergency Drill.

* Each Scout’s Emergency Service Kit (Scouts Bring)
* Troop Mobilization Plan (Scouts Do)
