Be Prepared

Greater St. Louis Area Council

Being a hero does not mean that you must risk your own life. It can mean getting help, or making a phone call to 911 to get the police, or fire department, or ambulance. The key is to use wisdom and  judgment, but to do it quickly. Sometimes time is limited. You can save a drowning person by pulling them in with a life ring, and not become a victim yourself by jumping in after them.  Many times an adult’s life has been saved because a child knew to call 911 in an emergency and get help right away.

You never know when or where emergencies will arise. Cub Scouting teaches us to handle these situations.  We don’t expect to get hurt, and don’t expect to need first aid, but we are prepared just in case. Do Your Best!

Fire Safety Closing

Baltimore Area Council

Extinguish the room lights, shine a small spotlight of flashlight on the U.S. flag and ask all to join in singing “God Bless America.” Cubmaster then says, “Cub Scouts, all during our meeting the candle representing the Spirit of Cub Scouting has continued to burn. Now we’ll blow it out, reminding ourselves that a flame must never be left burning when no one is around, but let us keep the light of Cub Scouting burning in our hearts.”
