Weather Hazard Training

Weather conditions — good, bad, and ugly — are an important factor in any outdoor Scouting activity. The BSA has developed an online “Weather Hazard” training for all Scout leaders. Completion of this training is required for a minimum of one adult for all Scout outings as of January 1, 2009.

How you plan and prepare for the weather can make the difference between a great outdoor experience, a miserable or cancelled outing, and even injury or death in hazardous conditions. The Weather Smart training is designed to help you and your Scouting unit plan and prepare for hazardous weather—to make you, “Weather Smart.
