June 2019 – Security

Imagine this: Your unit is ready to depart for a big adventure. All the Scouts and adult volunteers are on time, the weather is perfect, and everything is ready. Then you realize you’re missing something, and it’s a big something: Your unit’s trailer and all the gear inside—hundreds or even thousands of dollars’ worth of stuff—is gone, all gone. So, after you call the police, you might be asking yourself, how can we make sure our stuff is secure?

Keeping Scouts, volunteers, and their gear safe and sound—whether at your meeting place or on the trail—is Richard Bourlon’s mission in life. Richard is the team lead for Health and Safety Services here at the national service center and will share with us some do’s and don’ts and helpful tips to keep everyone and everything safe and secure.
