Safety

Nothing is more important within Girl Scouting than ensuring the health and safety of girls. Safety management will help you identify risks, avoid injury and illness, and help you respond to emergencies if needed.

Girl Scouts covers safety from all angles in several resources available to volunteers:

Council Resource Guide (CRG) Chapter 4: Volunteer Essentials, our council’s volunteer handbook, devotes an entire chapter to volunteers' responsibilities for protecting girls' emotional and physical well-being

Girl Scout Safety Guidelines, an overview of the 12 most important safety tips.

Safety Activity Checkpoints, in-depth safety information and tips that adult volunteers use for Girl Scout sports and activities; girls can also use these checkpoints to ready their group for a girl-led activity.

Emergency Cards- Includes important council emergency contact information.

Emergency Management Plan and Emergency Contact cards will assist you in getting the help you need in case of an emergency situation.
