Disaster Preparedness Badges Launched

Working in partnership with the St. Michael Parish Independence Committee, the National Scout and Venture Scout Committees developed Disaster Preparedness Badges for the Scouts and Venture Scouts. Last month the Chief Commissioner approved the requirements for the new badges which officially became effective on 1st July 2018.

The requirements for the badges can be download here or viewed on the Scout Programme page. It was agreed that training received by Scouts and Venture Scouts before 1st July 2018 can be used to qualify for this badge. The badges will be available in the Scout Shop by September 2018.

The development of this badge is one of the projects of the St. Michael Parish Independence Committee and it is hoped that boys will qualify for this badge before the Parish Independence Committee’s final judging in October.

In the near future, the badge will be further developed to include equivalent badges for the Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts. Also more in-depth requirements for the Chief Scout’s Award and the Queen’s Scout Award will be developed.    (2018-07-01)
