On Saturday November 12th from 09:00 to noon, Membership Orientation will be held in the EOC / Communications Center at 3280 Airport Road in Boulder. All new members need this training in order to qualify for their BCARES ID from the Sheriff's Department. This training is also recommended as a refresher if you have not had this training in the last 5 years.
At the end of the class we will also do the Carry Test which is required for field deployment. We'll meet in the parking lot at 11:30.
If you have any questions contact George - KA0BSA, BCARES EC & Chairperson

This is a great opportunity to assist one of our served agencies in their support of public safety & situational awareness as well as an excellent opportunity to enhance your training and experience with providing video coverage for future emergency events.
It's time again for our annual digital amateur TV (D-ATV) training before the CU football season opens.
This is the same training as last year, including (1) how we use ATV, (2) show-n-tell, and (3) how DVB-T works and why it works best for us.
If you couldn't make last year's training, or you're new and would like to be involved in our D-ATV events, or you'd like a refresher, please sign up (look under events).
The training will be held at the EOC from 8:30 to noon on Saturday, 13 August.

Announcing an opportunity to obtain CPR/AED and First Aid Certification for BCARES members.
The cost for this training will be $6 for CPR and $1.50 for First aid. This certification is required for the Field Support (S) and Field Qualified (Q) levels of BCARES membership and is good for 2 years.
There is a maximum class size of 9 for this training, and a minimum of 5, so sign up, with a booking, as soon as possible if you are interested. This is the best price I have ever seen, and it will be taught by Terry Young who teaches these courses for ARES groups across Colorado.
With an estimate of 3-4 hours for each session, I would suggest that we bring a sack lunch for a brief lunch break between sessions.
The date is set for Saturday June 11 and will be held in the Pawnee room in the Boulder EOC from 9am to 4pm.
To book a space for this training, click on the date (June 11) in the calendar.
Notice : This event has been closed.
We have several opportunities for our (D)ATV folks to help this summer:
Bolder Boulder on Memorial Day (5/30)
Dalai Lama visit to CU on Thursday, 6/23
Dead & Co evening concerts at CU Saturday & Sunday before 4th of July (7/2 and 7/3)
