Scouts-L Mail Archive for June of 1999: Re: Lifesaving

Recognition by Scouting for lifesaving is by the National Court of Honor;
however, performing standard first aid that one has been trained to perform
without extraordinary circumstances may not qualify for an award. If it does,
your situation would probably be likely to warrant the Heroism Award.
If the incident was reported in the news, secure copies of this. Contact your DE
or Scout Service Center to obtain an application and instructions.
