River Hawk Health & Safety

District Health & Safety Committee

Provides advice and assistance to ensure our District events and activities follow the BSA “Guide to Safe Scouting” and other related guidance. Qualified members of the committee support all District field events with safety and sanitation checks, preventive instruction, reviews of participant BSA Health Forms, special medical and dietary needs. Certified emergency responders from the committee provide weekend District camping events with 24/7 communications, a first aid trailer, and a first response team on site. They assess, triage, and treat minor injuries or illness and coordinate emergency evacuations with the local fire service via the 9-1-1 system. 

If you are a health care or safety professional, Paramedic, EMT, firefighter, or Wilderness First Responder and would like to assist the committee please contact the Chairperson, Carol Farmer.
