Scouts Emergency Preparedness Training 

Larimer OEM works in partnership with City of Fort Collins Office of Emergency Preparedness and Security to conduct the basic Emergency Preparedness Training required for Boy and Girl Scouts to achieve their merit badge or patch. We try to conduct this training at least once per quarter during the calendar year, so please refer to this page often for training dates. The training is conducted at the Fort Collins Emergency Operations Center and space is limited, so training will be reserved for first come first serve. 

For any questions regarding this training please contact Shayle Sabo at or Chris Wolf at

2020 Schedule 

The first training will be offered to Scouts at the Scout University in January. Please refer back to this page for additional dates soon.
