First Responders have long asked schools to label building exits (on the inside as well as the outside!) to facilitate better communication and faster response in an emergency. This process can be time consuming and costly for busy, financially strapped school communities.
Undaunted, one Ohio Eagle Scout helped his school district by organizing the project himself. He consulted local responders, school officials, and area businesses to plan and carry out the project. He even organized a band of area scouts to canvas the district and pitch in. The project was completed district-wide in less than a week with no financial or time cost to the schools. Because of this Scout’s attention to detail and duty, the project was completed with 100% accuracy and the schools in his community are now safer.
It is worth noting that this dedicated, young community servant is also autistic…AND truly inspiring!
