This is an annual event at the Boulder County Fair.

We setup a booth and engage with the public to answer questions and inform the public about the service we provide to the County.  During this time the public gets a chance to interface with a number of public service agencies such as Police, Fire, Ambulance and other organizations that provide community services.

We encourage BCARES members to help out with the setup, tear down, as well as stopping by during the event to share your experiences with BCARES.

It is a fun event and an opportunity to visit with personnel from some of our partners.

I just visited the Fair website and it appears that there will be many activities this year geared toward kids as well as all First Responders on August 3rd and 4th.

       I mentioned this opportunity during a recent BCARES Monday Night Net

As I noted then briefly, these courses are not for everyone and are geared mainly toward those individuals that are training to be leaders in the Incident Command System. Neither of these courses are required for any level of BCARES membership. For those who need this training, it is only offered locally very infrequently and is only conducted in a face-to-face classroom setting (unlike many other ICS course that are completed on-line)

If you are interested in this training, please contact me for more information.

The following is an excerpt of a recent note sent to all BCARES members by George Weber (KA0BSA). Jerry (N0OUW) is reporting that nearly half of our current members (45) do not have this item checked off in their Training Record. I will restate what George says below,  that this is also a valuable tool you can use for you family's safety in an emergency. Again, These classes are scheduled by the OEM and you need to register for the sessions with that office.  Here is a link to the registration form . Check your calendar for a date and time that might be convenient for you.........  Thanks.........Jerry      n0ouw@arrl.net
