  1. I'm spinning off of the other discussion about making the new Cyberchip requirements work for crossovers. The question is what can a scout learn via the existing curriculum that gets him somewhat prepared to help someone in need? And, what does a boy need to master to be prepared to help someone? I'm asking because I'm not involved in guiding scouts through the Cyberchip program, but I have scouts who are the "leaders" in their families in internet privacy/security issues. (That's good and bad.) Is this the 21st century equivalent of the old "how to help in case of a runaway horse" requirement in First Class first aid?
  2. The Risk Management Team has facilitated two additional training pieces for Scouters to use to prepare to transport Scouts Safely in addition to the Risk Zone: Transporting Scouts Safely. 15 Passenger Van Training is a short self-guided slide show. As a reminder: Pre-2005 15-passenger vans are not authorized for Scouting activities. Also, new is the Hartford Insurance Companies Driver Improvement Program which can be found on the BSA Learn Center, under Expanded Learning – Scouting U suggests the following: For BSA Learn Center – Members: To begin your Program Safety training, login to https://my.scouting.org. If you do not already have an account, you will need to create one. There are 2 ways to get to the training. Option 1: On the opening page select the BSA Learn Center Graphic. This will open into a new window, taking you into the BSA Learn Center. Option 2: Once you have logged in select the “Menu†button top left of the page. Then select “My Dashboard.†Then select “Training Center.†Select “Other.†Select “Program Safety.†Once on the home page scroll down to the Expanded Learning Section and Select “Program Safety.†This will take you to an “Expanded Learning Page.†Select the Learning Plan for “Program Safety.†Select the “+ Add Plan.†You may take the module of your choice from this area or go to the “My Learning†tab to begin training.
  3. The html and pdf versions of the Guide to Safe Scouting are now updated and available for your use on www.scouting.org. Since you are excited to go review the updates, and will appreciate the positive, proactive guidance provided here is a direct link to the Table of Contents. http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/GSS/toc.aspx (are additional commentary added) The updates are: Front Matter: Scouter Code of Conduct added. II. Aquatics Safety: The Safety Afloat section was updated. (Whitewater - Class II or above for helmets - matching industry best practice) IV. Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drugs: The entire chapter was updated and renamed. (simplified, reference Scouter Code of Conduct) IX. Insurance: The Automobile Liability Insurance section was updated. (mostly due to updated auto coverages by councils, some wording for clarity) X. Transportation: The Automobiles, SUVs, and Vans section was updated. (simplified, removed exceptions that I believe have been debated on the forum) RichardB

  6. Some fodder for your scoutmaster minute on why you emptied your canteen on some trail-side warming fire your boys lit ... http://wvpublic.org/post/update-three-wildfires-ablaze-dolly-sods-wilderness-two-fires-extinguished Forty years of nutrient litter smolder away in four days. Fortunately limited to just a few acres in a 64 square mile area. It's a shame, but many folks in these parts take fire risk too lightly, thinking it's a Western problem.
  7. An awesome update has been published for your reading pleasure. http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/GSS/toc.aspx Enjoy, RichardB

  11. http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/GSS/toc.aspx has the latest updates posted this week. In addition to those below, the revisions include the age appropriate guidelines as well. http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34416_Insert_Web.pdf Would ask that you take the time to review the updated Climbing and COPE activities section and share this information with others in your area. Would also suggest that if you have not reviewed it Belay On - the publication referenced - is a relatively new piece of literature for those who engage in the COPE / Climbing world. It can be found with other reference material here: http://www.scouting.org/Home/OutdoorProgram/COPE.aspx 2015 Updates April II. Aquatics Safety: The Safety Afloat section was updated to clarify Cub Scout participation in pack and den events. VIII. Sports and Activities: The Climbing and Rappelling, and COPE Activities sections were each revised and expanded throughout. XI. Transportation: Additions to this chapter include the future policy on using 15-passenger vans and guidelines on safe driving. Richard
