Fire Safety

Fire Safety will be presented by Shawn Woods of Woodstock, NH. He began in the fire service in 1995 as an Explorer with the Campton Thornton Fire Department. At age 16 Shawn was certified in SCBA, Ropes and Knots, and Forcible Entry. He was certified in Firefighter 1 in 2000 & Firefighter 2 in 2002. Shawn was registered as an EMT in 2003. He has gone to the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, MD on four different occasions. He is Fire Inspector certified, Arson Awareness certified and a deputy fire warden for the town of Woodstock, NH. Shawn received a life saving award from a fire in Lincoln several years ago and is currently a Captain for the Woodstock Fire Dept. Shawn has also taken and passed the CANDIDATE-PHYSICAL ABILITY TEST.

Scouts will learn skills to be better prepared to prevent fires, to survive fires and burns, and to use fire safely. This presentation will fulfill requirements 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10 for the Scouts BSA Fire Safety Merit Badge. Scouts must complete requirements 5, 6, 8, 11, 12, and 13 as prerequisites so the merit badge counselor can sign off on your blue card. Reading the Merit Badge Pamphlet is a must for many of the requirements and completing the Merit Badge Workbook is highly recommended.
