Q. Who needs to complete an Annual Health and Medical Record?
A. For any and all Scouting activities, all participants must complete Part A and Part B. "All participants" includes parents, guardians, siblings, youth, staff, and unit leaders. Though Part C is only required for participation in events lasting longer than 72 hours, all BSA participants are encouraged to complete this Pre-Participation Physical during an annual physical performed by a medical professional.
Q. How often will I need to renew/update my Annual Health and Medical Record?
A. The record will need to be updated at least annually, just as many schools or sporting leagues require an annual update. Many health changes can happen throughout a year, including changes in disease processes, medication, address, and insurance.
Q. Who keeps the Annual Health and Medical Records for Troop 633?
A. The Medical Forms Committee Member maintains the Troop's Health & Medical records. We request that 3 copies be provided to the Troop Committee to keep in each of our event binders. A binder will remain with a committee member during each campout, a binder will deploy with the Scoutmaster on each campout, and the remaining binder will be in the possession of another trained adult leader during each campout in the event of an emergency.
