Thanks for thinking of our Home Fire Preparedness Campaign as a volunteer opportunity for Boy Scouts. If this project helps them complete community service hours and helps them earn a disaster preparedness badge, then let’s make it happen!
I’m attaching the information that will be distributed to families receiving smoke alarms. Volunteers are divided into teams of 3 people. Each volunteer has a specific role:
Smoke Alarm Installer – installs the alarm climbing on a step stool, using a screwdriver or battery operated drill
Fire Safety Educator – shares fire safety education and prevention information with homeowner
Documenter – completes a form which includes homeowner’s contact information, # of alarms installed, and a little demographic info about the homeownert.
Also attached is a parental consent that will need to be completed for each Scout. The type of information given by the Disaster Safety Educator is included (home fire safety checklist). Let me know if this is enough information to determine whether or not this activity can earn the badge.
