    12 more dummies that won't pay their bill, sticking to the taxpayer.

    More info on emergency preparations

    "Mike Patrick, director of operations for the Summit Bechtel Reserve, said about 800 medical volunteers will be onsite in addition to military medical support.
    The Scouts are hoping that the reduced average temperatures, about 12-15 degrees, of their new site will at least provide some relief. On one day at the 2005 Jamboree, the Associated Press reported that 300 people, mostly Scouts, suffered from dehydration, fatigue and lightheadedness when temperatures and humidity rose.
    Air support and other transportation are also readily available for Scouts who might need to be transported to a nearby hospital. An inventory of nearby supplies of anti-venom and related treatments, Patrick said, has also been taken."
    "If Scouts need to be moved, Patrick said, the transportation company contracted for the Jamboree, Transportation Management Services, is prepared. TMS was selected by the Boy Scouts due to its experience at other large events such as Super Bowls and the Olympics.
    Patrick said they will be handling the daily transportation, the work of hundreds of buses. On the first day alone, 800 buses are expected to arrive, one every 45 seconds, to drop off Scouts at their camp sites."
