Training, Training, and more Training!

Friday, September 30, 2011

We've been awfully quiet lately and I'm sure that everyone is wondering why.

Remember the fundraiser that we held earlier this Summer? Those funds, along with funds that are so graciously given to us throughout the year, have been put to really good use in recent weeks. Our Unit conducts in-house training, however, it's always great to consider a new perspective every so often. In an effort to expand our technical knowledge of rescue operations, our Unit brought in an agency called Rigging for Rescue, who visited us here in Las Vegas and managed a 4-day seminar specifically tailored to the needs of our team.

Here are some pictures of the team learning new techniques:

And hey, if anchors aren't available, you can always build your own!

Not only was the seminar fun, but all volunteer participants will definitely agree that new knowledge is invaluable.  We couldn't have done it without the support from all of you, so thank you!
