With yesterday’s story about the National Jamboree World Record Breaking CPR and AED Training event that will be held at the National Scout Jamboree, here is some more Jamboree Safety news!
Cardiac Science Corporation will provide 32 Powerheart® AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) to be available at the 2010 Jamboree to help protect the lives of guests and participants. Following the event, these AEDs will be donated to the Boy Scouts of America and awarded to Councils and Troops in communities around the country.
Additionally, Cardiac Science will provide 2,500 AED instructional sheets to be used in the CPR/AED training event.

While it hasn’t been officially announced on bsajamboree.org yet, the 2010 National Jamboree Staff Training is now available in MyScouting. The training which is consistent with other BSA online trainings consists of a video, flash based presentation, checks on learning, and additional information that can be downloaded.
The training starts out with an introduction video from Terry Dunn, the 2010 National Jamboree Chairman, which stresses the importance in preparing for the Jamboree experience. The training then breaks down in the following sections: Prior to arriving to the Jamboree, Jamboree information, Jamboree Experience, your departure, and a conclusion. At the end of the training course you will be given a link to download a reference information sheet with additional resources to prepare for the Jamboree, and a link to the Jamboree Staff Guide.
The main goal of the training was to answer questions Jamboree Staff members have and make sure everyone is on the same page. As long as you’ve read the staff guide, and paid attention to everything you’ve received so far, there should be no surprises in this training.

The National Jamboree Medical Team has notified participants and staff members that the personalized, bar-coded medical records for the Jamboree have been delayed. (It was unclear if participants recieved an email directly, or if the Council’s were notified. All staff members should have recieved, or will be shortly, the below message.
The Jamboree team is working with our contractor to expedite delivery of your personalized, bar coded medical record for the Jamboree. Deployment was scheduled to begin on July 27th. We are working with the contractor to provide an enhanced medical record to insure that the information you provide is readable by the medical service team. We feel that a slight delay to make this the “BEST, most EXCITING, FUN-FILLED, SAFEST, jamboree EVER!” is worth a short delay.
Once the records begin to go out it is expected that the distribution will take several weeks. If you have an expectation that you will receive your medical form immediately, please understand that the email will be coming. We do not recommend scheduling a medical exam prior to the arrival of your personalized record. Due to the large number of medicals, they will not all go out at one time. The system will send out a duplicate if you have not turned in your record starting during the holidays.
Should you contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any reason, we appreciate your patience with the delay you will experience in receiving a reply. All of our resources are currently dedicated to the delivery of the Jamboree medicals. Most questions can be answered quickly by visiting www.bsajamboree.org and selecting “Be Prepared”. As more information is available, it will be posted on the website.

Additional Jamboree medical information can be found under the Be Prepared section of the 2010 Boy Scout Jamboree website.
