The Boy Scouts of America motto is “Be Prepared” and that’s a large part of emergency management. Boy Scouts who are working on their Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge are asked to visit with emergency management staff to learn about emergency management and how the Scouts can help their families become better prepared.
For more information on the Emergency Preparedness merit badge, please go to the Boy Scouts of America webpage
Richardson's Office of Emergency Management has developed a document
to help answer questions that are in the merit badge requirements. While this should cover the basics, we encourage the Scout to contact us so we can answer any questions they may have and provide further information that they seek.
