OLD TOWN, Maine — When a fire ripped through several downtown buildings earlier this year, the destruction affected more than just the people whose homes burned down or the business owners who lost their investments. It also touched the members of Boy Scout Troop 76, who were just starting to learn about emergency preparedness when the fire broke out. Ironically, the troop members found themselves ill-prepared to handle the devastating aftermath. That’s when it occurred to Troop Leader Chris Kelly to introduce a hands-on activity to teach the boys about emergency preparedness by collecting donations for people who survive fires or natural disasters.

I needed some good news and I think I found it. Outdoor emergency drill by the pro's (WRFD, RSAR, a FEMA CERT service team, etc.) who will setup a National Incident Management System (NIMS) command at a scout camp. Scouts will be trained and involved in the drill. http://www.thereddingpilot.com/20852...ill-on-jan-10/ Boy Scouts from Redding Troop 15 will fill the role of lost and injured patients while also being taught the fundamentals of emergency first aid and wilderness survival. “This drill represents an opportunity for our Scouts to contribute to an important event and an amazing opportunity to learn vital life-saving skills from some of the best in the field of emergency services said Raymond Schaer, troop leader. Sounds done right.
