Northern California Team Training

Saturday, November 11th and Sunday, November 12th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Are you curious about what happens when an Alcor Emergency Response Team is called into action?

You are invited to observe or participate in our 2006 Northern California training session. Instruction will be provided by members of the Alcor readiness and transport team.

The purpose of this training session is to teach people interested in learning about or joining the emergency first response team for the Northern California region.

There will be presentations of the emergency techniques and procedures employed by Alcor’s first responders and mannequins will be provided for hands-on practice.

If you are interested in participating in the training session to become an Alcor Certified Transport Technician or would just like to observe and meet Alcor representatives and other members, please RSVP to Michelle Fry.

INFORMAL DINNER
There will also be an informal dinner after the training session on Saturday, November 11th which is open to anyone interested in meeting other Alcor members. The location for the dinner will be announced at Saturday’s training session.

Training Update

Our most recent training session was held in southern California, with all
the regular members attending plus one new addition. Course curriculum
included our biohazard and communicable disease lecture, airway management
(including Combi-tube), medications, intraosseous IV placement training,
and manual cardiopulmonary support practice.

Our next stabilization training session will be held in Austin, Texas
later this month (September 23-24). We’ll be training both old and new
members of Alcor’s stabilization team, and are expecting to see a further
expansion of individuals available for standbys and stabilizations in this
newly-forming region.

We have also drafted our 2007 training schedule, which will continue our
policy of expanding into new regions. In addition to those regions
receiving training this year, (southern and northern California, Nevada,
Florida, Texas and the United Kingdom) we’re attempting to expand our
training program next year to include Australia, eastern and western
Canada, New England, and the Pacific Northwest.

We’re also scheduled to hold a Red Cross CPR class for local members and
anyone left in town after the upcoming conference. The class will be held
at the Alcor facility on Monday, October 9 at 10:00 am and will last about
four hours. Anyone interested in attending any of the upcoming training
sessions should RSVP to our Readiness Coordinator, Michelle Fry
(michelle@alcor.org).
