Public Safety GPS Training-of-Trainers

Registration is still open for the Saturday class. Register by 8:30am Thursday, July 11. Follow the link below to register.

The Franklin County REPC is hosting a  free, one-day GPS Training-of-Trainers program for those in the public safety field. This training is made possible by a grant from WRHSAC. Note: This is a one day class. You can choose to attend on July 12th OR July 13th. Also, please note that registration is limited to two members per department.

The day will begin with a two-hour seminar, led by Athol Fire Chief Tom Lozier, instructing students how to use their GPS devices. Following will be two drills in the field using what you just learned to a) find a lost hiker in the woods and b) determine the area of a brush fire and where it makes the most sense to deploy incoming equipment and apparatus. Students will be asked to commit to train members of their home departments within six months of completing the training.
