Virtual Search and Rescue Merit Badge

 

What: Search and Rescue merit badge will cover skills like working around specialized teams such as aircraft, canine, and aquatic rescue teams, and identifying differences between search and rescue environments, such as coastal, wilderness, rural, and urban landscapes.

 Meet your Counselor - William Ide served twelve years as United States Air Force Search & Rescue helicopter pilot and Search and Rescue Operations Officer. With over 1200 hours of helicopter flight time, he has conducted search and rescue in Alaska and Kuwait during Desert Storm. Seven lives saved and multiple assists! He is currently the Chief of Education at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, NV.

      

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members

HOW:  This Merit Badge will be taught in a virtual classroom. The class has a capacity of 15 Scouts. Small classroom size provides all students with the opportunity to share and interact with the counselors and other Scouts. Scouts should be prepared to be challenged and to join the conversation! Participants who do not engage with the class may not receive credit for the badge. Scouts must be prompt for all badge sessions. Late participants may not receive credit for all requirements.

Before beginning work on any merit badge, scouts are to have a discussion with their unit leader regarding the specific badge and counselor.

WHEN: This class will be held virtually over two sessions:

June 13, 2020 10:00AM-12:00PM EST. 

June 20, 2020 10:00AM-12:00PM EST. 

Scouts must attend both sessions to complete the offered requirements.

After registering, Scouts will receive a link and login information via email the day class is scheduled. Scouts will also receive instructor details that can be used to connect to the counselor on Scoutbook. This assures that completed requirements are easily recorded. 

PREREQUISITES:  2, 2a, 3b, 3c, 9 and attached PDF
