There are two FAQs that are highlighted by Troop 3 and Troop 1003. Please read them in their entirety. For a full list of questions, please visit this URL: https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/medical-formfaqs/
A. For any and all Scouting activities, all participants must complete Part A and Part B (both pages). “All participants” includes parents, guardians, siblings, youth, staff, and unit leaders. Though Part C is only required for participation in events lasting longer than 72 hours, all Boy Scouts of America participants are encouraged to complete this pre-participation physical during an annual exam performed by a licensed health-care provider.
A. In all cases, the information gathered is for use in conducting a safe Scouting program. Information in the AHMR must be maintained and shared in a confidential and discreet manner. Some conditions may require communication to ensure the safety of participants. This information should only be shared on a “need-to-know” basis.
1) Leaders are encouraged to maintain the original AHMR forms in a safe location in a binder or file that protects the documents entrusted to the adult unit leader. [Troop note: The Troop should consider keeping medical records in a clearly marked RED binder.]
2) AHMR forms should be taken on all activities, including travel to and from events.
Due to regulatory compliance restrictions, medical records shall not be stored on this website or any electronic repository maintained by the troop.
