The USDA-Forest Service and Smokey Bear also had many such posters. One might check with USFS offices on availability.

A small, firewood-sized log cut apart on a home shop bandsaw would be a great learning tool. Cheap enough that each scout can take one home. I'm sure a parent or grand parent in the pack would have access to a shop of some kind to prepare the logs.
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

Often I go back and start reading posts from many years ago.  I find some gems written by some FF friends I was never able to meet in person but I've been able to learn a great deal from.  I miss their sage advice and humor.  I appreciate that these posts are archived and accessible.  Thank you for keeping this ball rolling, Jeff.

Its been eleven years.  I don't think puddin is ever coming back to his post.
Curiosity got the best of me, so I checked. ;D     puddin  did stop back da next day at 6:28 AM. Probably got all the info that was freely offered by the 9 posters that had graciously responded by that time, then left for good without even a thanks.   :(

She signed off on her original request as "Cub Scout mom".
. . . and her bad manners would also make her a "rude mother". ;D
