EERU/ASAR training schedule updates


With the 2016 disaster season in full swing, the EERU/ASAR team has had to postpone of few trainings to allow for response.  The 2016 fall and summer training schedule is full through December already, and we have classes scheduling into spring 2017.  Some new training dates have been added for this fall.  Please see the training schedule summary below.  For more information on each class, go to the Event Calendar and click on those dates for class and registration information.  Dates may be subject to change if a response is needed.  If you are interested in hosting an EERU/ASAR class for 2017, please contact us now to start the planning and “hold-the-dates” process.  We are currently looking for ice rescue class hosting agencies.  If you would like to bring the Animal Ice Rescue Operations class to your region please email us at eerular1@yahoo.com.   Here is the rest of the 2016 training calendar as it currently stands:
