  2. Take part in a fire drill at your meeting place. What should you do if a fire breaks out?
  3. Make an emergency escape plan for your home.

Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
