In order to make the 2010 National Scout Jamboree “The Best, Most Exciting, Fun-Filled, Safest Jamboree Ever” the services handled in the past as “Health and Safety” have been split into two separate services.
Safety Services, which will be lead by Sven Rundman, National Capital Area Council, will focus on proactive accident prevention efforts to meet the goal of ZERO accidents at the 2010 National Scout Jamboree.
Medical Services, which will be lead by Dr. Carl Marchetti, Monmouth Council, is currently focused on identification and education of medical risk factors for participants, and efforts to ensure participants and staff are “getting fit” for the event. During the 2010 Jamboree, the Medical Services will provide on-site injury and illness care, if required, to return participants to their Troop as soon as possible.
Each Region will have a Chief Medical and Safety Officer who will oversee the Sub Camp Medical and Safety Officers. Selection of these key Safety and Medical Professionals is almost complete.
