  1. It is not a case of "an EMT is an EMT is an EMT". Every state is has its own EMT training standards and protocols for licensure and certification. BSA is a national orginization and has to have one set of standards for the whole counrty. If every state adopted the National EMT standards, BSA would probably begin to recognize EMT certification.
  2. A sight, sound, smell, or something we can't quite put or finger on. These can all be warning signs of danger. Trust your sences, even when you don't know why. The outdoors, no matter how familure we are with the area, can throw us a curve ball. When are brains nag at us that something is wrong, it is time to "get out of Dodge".

I work in a city with multiple active res
  5. EBSR uses the canned institutional food and its passable, barely. The salad bar, while not fancy, is popular with scouts and parents alike. Fresh fruit, oranges, apples, and bananans go like wild fire. While the entree portions are small, the all you can eat salad bar, fresh fruit, and peanut butter, jelly, and bread help campers of all ages fill up. I've never seen anybody walk away from the dinning hall hungry in 4 years.
