As announced in Scout Scene Vol. 1 Issue 8 - Dec. 2011, to align with the six "Star Badge System", consideration was given to reducing the number of Cub Scout Activity Awards from eight to six. " Emergency Preparedness" became an activity badge within "Home and Community".

Get the Emergency Preparedness Award cut-out page for your Cub Book (which unfortunately still show the old award, rather than the newer badge).
