Historic info from 2017 under Major Galford:

 

Friday 20 Jan 2017:

     You may begin arriving at 1900 if needed. For those of you who have not completed your GTM3 a SET will be there and you may demonstrate the skills you need to finish that. That is the only thing we will do that evening. Early arrival is if you will be traveling far and will be able to sleep at the facility.

 

Saturday 21 Jan 2017: 

     Check in for all others begins at 0700-0800. We will then form into teams and get started on the various trainings for the day. The afternoon will be fluid as we would like to do crash site location however the weather my prohibit flying. I am also in talks with a canine search team to come train with us as well. If there is enough computer access there may be some opportunity to do some of the online classes, however, the more you come prepared with by having it done ahead of time the better it will be. 

 

Sunday 22 Jan 2017:

*****CPR/ FIRST AIDE CLASS*****  I know this is becoming a bug hurdle lately to find these classes. I have secured a coworker of mine to teach that morning. Cost is $5.00 per person, she is donating her time and the cost if for the cards. Even if you are not coming for the whole training but need updated you can attend this part.  I need an accurate head count 2 days beforehand so she has the supplies needed.

The afternoon will be for demonstrating skills learned on Sat and obtaining signoffs. 

Prerequisties:

Form 32, Form 160, 161, 163.  If you need your ICUT training do the online lessons. 116, 117 under General Emergency Services. MOST Important..... Your commander needs to give you permission in eservices for training. 

Please bring the cost for CPR cards with you that day and I will collect it then. 

Any questions please reply to your ES officers of commander. 

Most importantly the location: Port Meadville Airport will be the base of operations.

Historic info from 2015 under Major Galford:

Friday night check in will begin at 1700 at the Airport. A new concept has been
added to check in. If you have a few items left on your SQTR to have a level signed

next level on Saturday.
Saturday check in will begin at 0600. There will be no chance to test for current
level up at that time. Check in ends at 0700 Saturday am as training will begin
right away.
