Well these past week has been a whirlwind of projects. Dave has appointed me with two new jobs; Training Officer and Safety Officer, So I have launched a new blog for Training and Safety, www.ac7kh.com. Here we can have open discussions about training requirements and safety issues so that we as individuals can be recognized as certified professional volunteers and we as a group can be recognized as professional grade volunteers. A lot of the information will be coming from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and US Coast Guard manuals as I am a member of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Throw in stuff from the US Army, Navy, Red Cross and other service organizations, I think we will be able to find answers and additional resources.
We will have readings and if necessary training classes for ISC courses (you know the courses required by FEMA and other DHS agencies require so we know the rules on how to play together), making arrangements for our members to take Red Cross Courses on 1st Aid and CPR.
Well I hope I now have everything worked out on how to access these blogs from the internet. Good Nite all or as I use on other sites TTFN (Ta Ta For Now)
