BSA National has unveiled a new Annual Health and Medical Record that replaces all previous BSA medical forms.
Here are some things to note about the new Record:
- Parts A and C are to be filled out annually by youth and adult members of all BSA units (including Cub Scout packs).
- Part B is to be filled out by a licensed health care provider. It is required for resident camp, for events lasting more than 72 hours, and for activities that are strenuous and demanding such as service projects, work weekends, or high-adventure treks.
- Units are encouraged to keep the Annual Health and Medical Records in a confidential medical file for quick access in an emergency and to be prepared for all adventures.
- There is now a mandatory weight limit for those who want to participate in high-adventure activities or events that would require more than 30 minutes for evacuation by ground transportation.
