Safety Pin Award

Safety Awards

Our girls are beginning to work on safety. They will work on some of these requirements at meetings and events. Some of the requirements to earn the pin will need to be completed at home. Please print the forms and review safety at home.

Daisy Safety Pin Requirements

  • Understand what to do if you get lost:

  • Find out what you should do if you or a friend is choking.

  • Learn how to do “Stop, Drop, and Roll” if your clothing catches fire.

Turn the form in at our meeting to earn your safety pin.

Brownie Safety Pin Requirements

  • Talk to a teacher, parent, or another adult about how to stay safe at school. Make a list of the three most important rules for playground safety or safety on the school bus.
  • Get a map of your neighborhood or town and mark with the police station, fire station, and other important points are located.
  • Find out a smoke alarm works. Test the one at your home so you know what it sounds like and to make sure it’s working.
  • Choose an upcoming trip you plan to take – to a carnival, amusement park, the mall, or even just the grocery store – and make a safety plan with an adult. Find out what to do if a stranger approaches you in a public place.
  • Find out what natural disasters are most common in your area (earthquakes, blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods) and discuss with your family or another adult what to do when they happen.

Turn the form in at our meeting to earn your safety pin.

Junior Safety Pin Requirements

  • Find out what the most common injuries are for kids your age. Make a list of how you can prevent them. Then do a home safety audit to check for dangers around the house.
  • Conduct an emergency evacuation drill of your home or the place your Girl Scout group meets. In the case of a fire, know where your main exit is located, and plan an alternate way to get out if the first exit is blocked.

  • Find out how to read weather signs so you know when to head indoors and get to safety.
  • Learn about bicycle safety. Research why bike helmets are important and how to check if a helmet fits you properly.
  • Learn how to identify hazards. Go on a hazard-identification walk along a local hiking trail, bike trail, or horse trail.

Turn the form in at our meeting to earn your safety pin.
