Scampers Staff Safety Training Day
Dear --FNAME--

To all the staff who were able to attend, thank you for taking the time to expand your knowledge.

We received very positive feedback, and look forward to scheduling more training events over time, including sessions on Pack Management and Dog Behavior. Please feel free to bring your ideas for training, and we'll see what we can put together.

Special thanks to Elise and McKenzie for sharing your knowledge. It was a great day.


Thank you all so much for your time and attention during our first Safety Day! You were a great audience. 
Attached, you'll find the PowerPoint presentation I used. The resources page at the end will direct you towards further training and volunteer opportunities. 
The next Redmond CERT class starts September 14th. Janeen Olsen is the contact person - tell her I sent you! This is the best class for those of you who want to take the next (big) step towards being a first responder in your community, learning in-depth emergency medicine, scene assessment, structural integrity assessment, disaster psychology, and more. Class registration can be found at  
For those of you interested in WASART, see the training schedule at Our Core training will likely be offered in spring, but both Sheltering and Field Response are offered in September. There is an annual membership fee for this organization, and classes are fee-based. However, I have not found better or more organized classes anywhere in the country for those who are interested in emergency animal operations. 
Anyone interested in animal behavior and handling should start with the website and the two slideshows I included on the resources page. They are an excellent introduction to body language and communication. Let me know if you are interested in further training or hands-on classes. 
I am also happy to share my suggested reading lists with anyone who is interested. These are usually survival or animal behavior books, but sometimes I throw in some agriculture, economics, or social science for fun. 
Thanks again, and feel free to drop me a line any time with questions, comments, feedback on classes, or to forward this or my contact information to anyone you think might be interested. 
Be well,

Linda Olsen and Stina Hughes
