对于超过 50 多年来BSA使用了某种形式的规划和审查工具, 这是提交给当地市议会或者BSA国家局审查. 4月生效 1, 2017, 旅游和活动计划 (T&美联社) 将不再使用. 这是最新评估由内BSA跨职能团队的结果, which determined T&接入点均显著未充分利用, 增加的复杂性, and limited the “safety planning” components of the planning process to a few leaders.
- 降低复杂性, cutting back on processes and paperwork for unit leaders.
- 增加或提高一致性 与现有规划的资源 -
- BSA国家局 – 安全承诺,
- 的 安全侦察指南,
- 国家阵营标准 (NCAP) 规划工具
- 改变会话, engaging everyone in risk-based planning vs. 过程.
对于一些领袖, 这可能没有多大的意义，因为他们不熟悉的工具和资源，旅游和活动计划提供或如何正确地使用它. 其他人可能欢呼, 因为它们不需要完成一种形式或网上申请的单位继续高探险活动之前，. Some leaders felt the T&AP was an indispensable part of the activity planning process (we applaud you).
Regardless of which camp (pun intended) you were in, we have learned that solid and effective planning is the best way to help ensure an outing is Christ- centered, 乐趣, and safe. There is something very beneficial about sitting down, counseling together and planning out an activity that helps identify potential risks and hazards; in some instances those risks seem to jump right off the page…in some cases, the hazards are more subtle and need to be coaxed into the light. 我们需要时间之后，以确定他们, then those risks can be mitigated or avoided.
在接下来的几个月, we will continue to focus blog articles on our ongoing responsibilities to follow the programs and guidelines of the Boy Scouts of America and what resources are readily available to support us in those efforts.
在结束了, we want you to know that safety is important to the First Presidency “…both to preserve the safety of participants and to protect the Church… (安全在教会活动, 5 月 19, 2016)” and to your local and national BSA leaders as stated in The BSA’s Commitment to Safety; “我们想让你知道，我们的青春的安全, 志愿者, 员工, 和员工是侦察经验的重要组成部分。”
