Scouts from Bemus Point Troop 137 were completing requirements for the new Search & Rescue Merit Badge that includes first aid, compass work, map reading and search techniques among related skills. Ranger Pachan, a 10-year veteran, has taught search and rescue methods to area fire and police units over the years. This is the first time he has taught the skills to Boy Scouts.
