Search and Rescue

Audience: Youth

It’s pretty darn easy to get lost in the wilderness. One poor decision or one mental lapse can land anyone in the middle of nowhere without the slightest clue how to get out.

That’s when search-and-rescue teams come in handy.

And though the average Boy Scout isn’t qualified to lead a full-fledged search-and-rescue mission, they can Be Prepared to help out when needed. That’s where the brand-new Search And Rescue merit badge comes in handy.

The S&R 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.
