It is recommended that each Pathfinder Club have an appointed Safety Officer for the duration of the club year.  The Safety Officer should be the person to oversee that all the insurance and safety issues are dealt with properly.  They would also make sure each Pathfinder has current medical forms on file; permission forms for off premises activities, and updated parental contact information.  Some of the areas they would oversee would be as follows:

Prohibited Activities

  • • Disaster / Emergency Plan
  • • General Liability Insurance
  • • Medical Coverage
  • • Mission Trips
  • • Transportation / Insurance
  • • Field Trip / Outing Planner
