More than 100,000 Scouts from across the UK have now passed their Scout Fire Safety Badge, sponsored by SMC. The badge aims to raise fire safety awareness among Scouts and their families across the UK.
The SMC has proved to be the fastest growing and most popular scouting badge over recent years, and requires Scouts to understand what causes a fire, how to call the Fire Brigade, how to understand fire blanket and extinguisher usage, as well as fire safety for the home. Bringing all of this learning together, popular live fire demonstrations are delivered by the company's fire training officers at local fire stations.
SMC renewed its sponsorship with The Scout Association two years ago, including the provision of new educational literature and posters to more than 7,200 local Scout Troops across the UK.
Sally Hilton, Corporate Partnership Executive for The Scout Association, says, "The SMC Badge is always a popular badge for the Scouts and in the last quarter, we saw 10,750 10- to 14-year-olds pass it, taking us beyond the 100,000 mark. It is a tremendous achievement, and we are pleased that so many Scouts have benefited from the important learning delivered in this well thought out badge."
Jane Garland, SMC Marketing Communications Manager, adds, "The importance of fire safety simply cannot be emphasised enough; it is a sad fact that almost 13,500 people are killed or injured each year in fires in the UK.
"Many of these fires are preventable and we hope our work with The Scout Association goes some way to better educate young people and equip them with the right skills to keep them and their families safe."
