3 Totin Chip Read and understand woods tools use and safety rules from the Boy Scout Handbook. Demonstrate proper handling, care, and use of the pocket knife, ax, and saw. Use knife, ax, and saw as tools, not playthings. Respect all safety rules to protect others. Respect property. Cut living and dead trees only with permission and good reason. Subscribe to the Outdoor Code.

4 Firem n Chit I have read and understand use and safety rules from the Boy Scout Handbook. I will build a campfire only when necessary and when I have the necessary permits (regulations vary by locality). I will minimize campfire impacts or use existing fire lays consistent with the principles of Leave No Trace. I will check to see that all flammable material is cleared at least 5 feet in all directions from fire (total 10 feet). I will safely use and store fire-starting materials. I will see that fire is attended to at all times. I will make sure that water and/or shovel is readily available. I will promptly report any wildfire to the proper authorities. I will use the cold-out test to make sure the fire is cold out and will make sure the fire lay is cleaned before I leave it. I follow the Outdoor Code, the Guide to Safe Scouting, and the principles of Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly!
