No. So long as you have EITHER Lifesaving OR Emergency Preparedness, you're fine. Same with Hiking, Swimming, and Cycling - So long as you have ONE of those 3, you're fine.Trp210ScoutNC wrote:On the meritbadge listing on meritbadge.org I looked at Lifesaving and it says "This badge is an Option for Eagle Scout Rank" I know you can get Emergancy Prepardness instead for Eagle.
But say I got Emergancy Prep and had it listed down for Life Scout on my book (I just made Star Scout in my troop) would I have to get Lifesaving for Eagle Scout?
No. What the rules mean (although not stated this way) is this: (RED is additional wording, PURPLE is words to be deleted.)Quailman wrote:It (the GTA) mentions earning both E Prep and Lifesaving, and one counts as an elective. I could not find the case of what to do if the scout earns, say, three Citizenship MBs, plus Env. Sci., Pers. Mgmt. And Pers. Fitness all for Star. Maybe I was mistaken and you can't count extra ER badges unless, like E Prep, it can be an elective.

Of course, those changes should really go into Boy Scout Requirements, not the Guide to Advancement, but at least they responded and said they'll consider them.Thanks for your suggestions. We will include them in the material the GTA revision task force will review later this spring. The next edition of GTA will be released in early 2013.
