Contact Information for your Community’s Emergency Management Director and a list of what this person does for 6c. Requirements:           Click Here! This page also provides links to information regarding certain requirements, which should prove to be helpful in preparing to take this merit badge at camp. Notes: *With the exception of Shotgun Shooting, merit badges that are shown twice are taught separately. Before long (January 1, 2014) the list of Eagle required merit badges will change slightly with the addition of cooking as a required merit badge and the new sustainability merit badge as an alternative to environmental science. These changes get me thinking about the merit badge program as a whole and Eagle required badges in particular. Looking at the list of  Eagle required badges I note that  academic-style requirements (listing, defining, explaining, planning, writing) far outweigh requirements centered on actual activities and experiences – even with badges like cooking and camping.

In the Scoutmaster conference for the Scout badge, I explain that Tenderfoot is learning to take care of yourself while camping, Second Class is learning to participate in your patrol, and First Class is learning to contribute to your patrol.
My son is an Eagle Scout (2009) and I remain very involved with the program at a district level and as a merit badge counselor. Meet with and teach your family how to get or build a kit, make a plan, and be informed for the situations on the chart you created for requirement 2b. Find out who is your community’s emergency management director and learn what this person does to prepare, respond to, recover from, and mitigate and prevent emergency situations in your community.
This site offers reference sources in and below the requirements in order to make answering the questions easier. Scouts who camp and cook in patrols regularly will complete many of the requirements in the course of their routine activities and many of the requirements correspond to rank requirements up to first class rank.

The problem is, at least to my mind, that most of these badges emphasize academic oriented methods over Scouting methods. Discuss this information with your counselor and apply what you discover to the chart you created for requirement 2b. Prepare a family kit (suitcase or waterproof box) for use by your family in case an emergency evacuation is needed. A picture of the same kit laid out different five times will not fulfill the requirement for five different scouts.
