Search and Rescue
Hour 2 (3:00-3:50 M-Th)
Imagine the concern a parent or loved one has when a teenager is overdue from a hike in the wilderness, a small child is missing from a crowded playground, a rock climber becomes stranded on a precarious ledge, or an elderly person wanders away from a caregiver. These occurrences happen several hundred times each year and often may require the services of trained Search and Rescue managers and teams. Search and Rescue Merit Badge gives scouts an insight on what takes place during Search and Rescue Missions, how to prevent yourself from becoming the subject of a Search and Rescue Mission, and hazards that might entail during Search and Rescue Mission.
5. Complete the training for ICS-100, Introduction to Incident Command System. Print out the certificate of completion and show it to your counselor. Discuss with your counselor how the ICS compares with Scouting’s patrol method.
