Upcoming Classes:
March 22, 2012 at 6:00 p.m.:     Community Awareness Program
The community Awareness Program (CAP) empowers citizens to help play a role in enhancing our community safety.  Developed by The Counterterrorism Education learning Lab (The CELL) and the Colorado Information Analysis Center (CIAC), the CAP is an interactive curriculum, taught by Colorado public safety professionals, that provides citizens with the basic tools needed to recognize and help prevent terrorist and criminal activity in their hometowns.

April 26, 2012 at 6:00 p.m.:      Disaster Planning with Pets and Large Animals
If you are like millions of animal owners nationwide, your pet is an important member of your household.  Unfortunately, animals are also affected by disasters.

The likelihood that you and your animals will survive an emergency such as a fire or flood, tornado or other event depends largely on emergency planning done today.  This class will provide important information on some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as assembling an animal emergency supply kit and developing a pet care buddy system, are the same for any emergency.  Whether you decide to stay put in an emergency or evacuate to a safer location, you will need to make plans in advance for your pets.

Please register in advance for each class by contacting the District's Training Division at 303-833-2742 or if you would like to attend.
