Emergency Plans

This page provides 1st Stittsville Scout Leaders with templates and instructions for Emergency planning. These templates provide  a means to identify the participants in an activity away from regular meeting spot; assess the risks that may be associated with the activity and to develop an action plan to follow in the event of an emergency.  These templates are not a replacement for Scouts Canada BP&P procedures; but instead, are intended to supplement the BP&P information available on the Scout Canada web site.
