are responsible for safety while the boys are in their care.
Safety rules should be enforced at all times during den/pack meetings
Teach the boys the rules of safety around the home, fire
safety, and water safety, using the Cub Scout achievements and electives.
Meeting places must be free of accident hazards. Use the
Meeting Place Inspection Form, No. 6140, to check them.
Use a few minutes of den or pack parents' meeting to
discuss the value of teaching the boys to cope with everyday hazards of
living. Often parents place too
much emphasis on keeping children away from hazards and not enough on
teaching them what to do when they are faced with hazards such as a broken
electric cord. Instead of
asking boys to stay off the streets, teach them to observe proper
precautions while they are in the street.
Instead of keeping boys indoors in cold weather, teach them how to
dress to protect themselves against the cold.
Invite local experts to visit with parents and Cub Scouts about such
subjects as: Fire Safety, Traffic Rules or Basic First Aid
