My nephew is a boy scout. Well, really he is a cub scout, but he’s working his way up to boy scout. I like the idea that he’s being prepared to do lots of things, to take care of himself and think of others. That’s one of the reasons I took note of this story.
Yes, I am that selfish that I only notice items if they directly or indirectly apply to my life.
Boy Scouts in West Texas talk disaster preparedness
Several groups are teaming up with the National Weather Service to raise awareness
— reported by the Houston Chronicle
Boy Scouts in more than three dozen West Texas counties are using their “Be prepared” trademark motto to educate people on the value of being ready for all types of disasters and having emergency kits handy to respond to all types of warnings from their NOAA weather radios.
It’s part of a partnership between the Scouts’ Texas Trails Council and the Concho Valley Council and the National Weather Service.
Several organizations are working together on the West Central Texas All Hazards Preparedness Campaign.
Kent Brown, the Texas Trails Council’s executive director, said the Boy Scouts will help educate the public about the value of the New NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards, which activates when alerts are issued on severe weather as well as situations such as hazardous spills and Amber Alerts.
