What to do in an emergency

Here is a quiz for part 4 of the Lockdown Expedition Challenge. It will also count for Emergency Aid Staged Activity Award levels 2.

To complete this quiz you will need to enter your name and the email address of a parent or gurdian. You will then be emailed your results at the end of the quiz along with a certificate. Please check the spam/junk folder as sometimes it ends up here especially if you use a Gmail account.

Try it once. Then you can see what you got wrong.  We would then like you to go and research those areas you did not know the answers for and do the quiz again.  This is not supposed to be a test but a teaching exercise to improve your knowledge. You will not pass or fail but if we were to run this as a face to face scout sevent you would have the opportunity to ask question so you know all the answers. Upload your results to OSM as evidence of completion of the appropriate part of the Expedition Challenge and Emergency Aid Staged Activity Award levels 2

Good luck and have fun!!
