These procedures apply to all leaders and volunteers with responsibility for girls and participants at official Girl Scout activities. It is very important that these steps are followed consistently in any emergency situation. NOTE: The following procedures are provided to Girl Scout volunteers on postcard-size cards. Remember to keep your card with you, readily available for quick reference in case of emergency.

 

  1. Always have someone in the group as the designee to call 911.
  2. Remain calm.
  3. Give priority attention to providing all possible care for the injured.
  4. Secure emergency medical services and law enforcement as appropriate.
  5. Report the emergency immediately by calling GSGST 956-495-6142
  6. In the event of a serious accident or fatality, always notify law enforcement. Do not leave the scene of the accident until law enforcement arrives. If you must leave, retain a responsible person at the scene. Ensure that the victim and the surroundings are not disturbed until law enforcement has assumed authority.
  7. Record in writing:Submit completed insurance forms and a copy of the above record of the incident to GSGST within four (4) days.
    • Conditions existing at time of incident.
    • Names, addresses, and phone numbers of witnesses.
    • Order of events leading up to and following the incident.
    • Any medical attention, opinions, or instructions received from parents.
  8. Submit completed insurance forms and a copy of the above record of the incident to GSGST within four (4) days.
  9. MAKE NO STATEMENTS TO THE MEDIA. Take a message and inform them that someone will return their call. Refer all media inquiries (press, radio, television) to GSGST. If a GSGST staff member is not readily available, then report the media request by calling GSGST 956-495-6142.
  10. Do not discuss the incident, place blame, or accept liability.

Resource Rebates

Resource Center equipment sometimes requires a use fee and/or deposit. A special program called Resource Rebates has been created specifically to make the Resource Center available to all girls and troops, regardless of financial status.

Resource Rebates are paper money awarded to volunteers upon completion of activities that promote building the skills and knowledge needed to operate a Girl Scout troop or group effectively. Volunteers can earn Resource Rebates by attending their service unit meetings, taking training, serving on or attending council committees and/or meetings, planning service projects with your troop, and other ways.

Resource Rebates can be used to pay any use fee charged by the Resource Center including laminating costs, copy expenses, certificates, Resource Center publications, equipment fees, etc. Resource Rebates cannot be used in lieu of deposits, damage fees, or replacement costs.
