Incident/Accident Report Form
Although you hope the worst never happens, you must observe Council
procedures for handling accidents. At the scene of an accident, first
provide all possible care for the sick or injured person. Follow
established Council procedures for obtaining medical assistance and
immediately report the emergency. To do this you must always have on
hand the Green Emergency Action Plan Card, health forms and permission slips.
After receiving a report of an accident, Council staff will
immediately arrange for additional assistance at the scene, if needed,
and will notify parents/guardians, as appropriate. If a child needs
emergency medical care as the result of an accident or injury, first
contact emergency medical services, and then follow Council procedures
for accidents and incidents. Your adherence to these procedures is
critical, especially with regard to notifying parents or guardians. If
the media is involved, let Council-designated staff discuss the
incident with these representatives.
As the troop leader/service unit leader, you are required to submit
an Incident/Accident Report even if emergency care is not required.
This form is filled out digitally and transmitted to the Council when
you click the "submit" button. Do not forget to include the
Parental Permission slip or Activity Release, Hold Harmless &
Consent Form when submitting your Incident/Accident report.
