I’d venture to guess that when most of us see that Girl Scout logo, the first things we think of are those deliciously caramel-delightful cookies. But these scouts aren’t just about selling cookies! Oh no. They’re about saving lives too.
That’s right, in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security Citizen Corps the Girl Scouts have just unveiled a new preparedness patch! The goal is for the Girl Scouts to help advance community preparedness nationwide.
“As a former Girl Scout,” says DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, “I know the ‘Be Prepared’ motto well-and I look forward to working with the Girl Scouts to spread the preparedness message to all of our nation’s citizens.”
Wanna be cool like a girl scout? Be prepared for anything.
P.S. Thanks to John Solomon – aka the One-Man Emergency Preparedness News Feed (who you should be following!) – for blogging this fantastic story. I would likely have missed it otherwise!
