TROOP 168 MOBILIZATION PLAN – updated 9.26.20
The Troop Mobilization Plan is to mobilize the troop in an organized manner to a predetermined area or place. This troop may be called upon in the event of a natural disaster, service request or a local emergency, in which case this plan will come into effect.
1. The troop adult leaders (Charter Organization Representative, Committee Chairman or Scoutmaster) are notified to assist with a Service Response.
2. The troop adult leadership will write a scripted message which is to be delivered to each Scout, including any necessary response or feedback and a reminder to receive permission from parents for the action.
3. The troop adult leadership sends an email with the scripted message to the troop email list.
4. The Scoutmaster notifies the Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) to implement the Troop Mobilization Plan and gives the SPL the scripted message and necessary information to begin the troop mobilization. All scouts are asked to respond to the email with a “Yes” or “No” to signify their participation status.
5. If time permits, the Scoutmaster and SPL count the responses and initiate phone calls to those that did not respond. If email is not available, the SPL begins the task of contacting and informing all Scouts about the troop mobilization using the Phone Tree Steps and scripted message provided by the Scoutmaster.
7. Scouts report to the emergency response location at the stated time according to instructions received.
8. The SPL leads the troop members in an “after-action” lesson using the Evaluation Process of the Troop Mobilization Plan in order to improve upon subsequent troop mobilizations.
9. After the troop has met and executed its designated task, the SPL and Scoutmaster must select a date for another drill roughly six months from the current date.
