Post Red Cross Shelter Training
"The Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross, in coordination with the Park County Emergency Management agency, will offer training for local volunteers in the operation and management of a Red Cross shelter. The goal of this training is to have locally trained volunteers available to quickly respond to an emergency situation in the event of a wildfire, blizzard, road closing or other event where evacuations are required or people must be assembled in order to insure their safety. The training will be offered on Friday evening, 6 November 2009 and all day Saturday, 7 November 2009 at the Fairplay Fairgrounds. The training will also be offered on Friday evening, 13 November and all day Saturday, 14 November at the Platte Canyon Fire Department at Crow Hill in Bailey. The Friday evening sessions will consist of in-processing, orientation and a class entitled "Fulfilling Our Mission". On Saturday the training will consist of two classes: "Shelter Operations and Management" and a "Shelter Simulation". Those who complete the training will be certified and approved to staff a Red Cross shelter in the event of a local disaster. The classes will be limited to approximately 20 volunteers each, so if you would like to attend the training or would like more information, please contact Jerry Bell, Ph: 303-838-0870, Email: as soon as possible to obtain additional details and information. All Red Cross volunteers are required to complete a background check which is provided free of charge."
