Incident Reporting

If an injury occurs during a unit outing that requires more than Scout-rendered first aid to treat, an Incident Information Report must be filled out and filed with the Longs Peak Council Office by sending it to the Council Risk Management Chair, Jeanene Gage.

Why fill out an incident report? A key responsibility we all share is providing a fun and effective program that meets the needs of young people while providing for the proper health and safety of all concerned. This form alerts the council to the occurrence of the incident and provides valuable information to identify safety trends that help prevent similar injuries in the future. It may also help us walk the unit leaders through any insurance and liability issues.
