EMERGENCY PREPARENESS AWARD

When a member has fulfilled the requirements, a completed application is submitted to a Council Service Center. Upon approval, an Emergency Preparedness pin, pocket card, and certificate may be purchased from the local Scout Shop.

The pin may be worn on civilian clothing or on the uniform, centered on the left pocket flap.

The award may be earned more than once; for instance, as a young person advances through the ranks and is capable of more complex preparedness activities, but only one pin may be worn.

All emergency activities carried out by Scouting units must be appropriate for the ages and abilities of the young people involved. Units should participate only under the supervision of their own leaders, and plans for unit help must be coordinated with community agencies responsible for disaster preparedness.
