BSA Camp Cornhusker near Humboldt, Nebraska has now had to use their Emergency Planning Training twice within the last 2 weeks. First, last Tuesday (see 10/11 camp cornhusker) the whole camp of 400+ staff and scouts were evacuated 10 miles north to the High School in Humboldt, NE as a tornado and baseball size hail came dangerously close to the camp. Then rumor has it (but unconfirmed) that TONIGHT the camp is on lock-down as a gunman that shot an officer by humboldt is roaming the area. This is definitely testing the emergency preparedness skills of the BSA, and continues to reinforce the need to finalize funding for a Tornado/Safe Shelter within the camp. Camp Cornhusker staff including Director John Irwin have been praised for their leadership skills during the recent, and now unfolding events.
