The 54th JOTA / 15th JOTI 2011
The 54th Jamboree On The Air will take place on 15 and 16 October 2011. This year’s theme is: Peace, Environment and Natural Disasters.
An exciting activity that focuses on the strength of Scouting: to act and support in unforeseen circumstances. Scouts are prepared.
Why are Scouts always there first when disaster strikes?
There are Scout groups nearly everywhere, well organized, with good contacts in the local community. The Scouts are usually trained in basic first-aid medical techniques, orienteering and they have the material that is needed to set up a temporary shelter real quick: tents, cooking material, construction material, it is all there, waiting for the next troop camp, or, yes, it can be used in case of emergency.
