SOme of the ideas that I can think of, as a FORMER pack chair, would
be to review the ADULT leader training. We used to always make sure
we ran the youth protection training each year, for all new parents,
and/or leaders. We also tried to make sure all the Webelos leaders,
and any adults that would be carrying a knife or woods tools (ie Axe)
got the totenchip cards, firemanship training, LIQUID FUELS certification,
etc. We also reviewed and reminded all adults of the need for 2 deep
leadership, and TOUR permits for trips, as well as mainting a list
of insurance and vehicle registration information and liability issues.
We presented a case of a group of cubs going to a winter outing, and
there was an accident. Turned out, the driver had an expired out of
state Drivers liscense, and no insurance on the car, and an expired
registration, and NO safty inspection. MAJOR MAJOR (!) problems!
We also ran a leaders FIRST AID, and CPR program. Or if not, we
found out where and when training was being provided, and made the
information available to all the leaders. We also wanted to make
sure all DEN and Webelos leaders had a BODY fluids clean up kit,
with latex gloves etc. There is no simple first aid any more.
former Pack chair, and former cubmaster, etc.
