Sat 12/10 – MERIT BADGE OPPORTUNITY!! – Charleston County Emergency Management Department will host a one day event to complete the Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge on Saturday December 10 from 9:00 – 2:00. The activity will be held at Charleston County Rescue Squad at 2521 Rescue Drive North Charleston, SC 29405. There is no cost of the merit badge and the scouts will be provided a free pizza lunch. Scouts MUST have completed the First Aid Merit Badge, and also complete requirement 2b before attending. In the morning session of the class the scouts will assist in a disaster scenario. They will need to wear old clothes because they will play victims and will get moulage (special effects) to make them look like real disaster victims. After the disaster scenario we will take a lunch break and will have pizza brought to the site. The afternoon session will be held in the classroom to complete the rest of the merit badge requirements. Please bring a blue card with you already filled out with your information. To sign up for the merit badge please contact Joe Coates at 843-746-3805 or by email at
