Report to the Nation

SAFETY MOMENT - Be prepared

September is National Preparedness Month

Being Prepared – What a concept!

Upon hearing the Scout motto, someone asked Scouting founder Robert Baden-Powell the inevitable follow-up question.

“Prepared for what?”

“Why, for any old thing,” he replied.

This is a great time for your scouts and units to prepare for medical, weather, and earthquake emergencies or . . . “for any old thing”.
