COMMUNITY OUTREACH, EDUCATION EVENTS, AND TRAINING

 

      

Our Team believes in community outreach, community education, and assisting the citizens and local emergency response agencies in our coverage area.  To that end, our Team is heavily involved in various community outreach and community education programs such as free AHA CPR classes, free AHA first aid classes, free emergency vehicle operator course classes, free blood borne pathogens classes, free vehicle extrication classes, and other free rescue workshops and support, school and business presentations, etc.

In addition, we strive to have our Team complete as much training as possible to improve the qualifications of our members and to improve our effectiveness in the community.

 

 

 

Since our inception in January of 2010 and through December of 2015, we have completed the following:
