Amazon Smile, Donation Jars, K9 Demonstration at UW

Equipment/Gear

Dry suits were discussed again this month. Grants for the suits are in progress.
Discussion was held on where and how to store the new and existing radios. There was discussion on whether we would like to order mics and a bank charger for the new WyoLink radios. No final decisions were made this month, more information will be gathered on types and cost of mics.
Purchasing new ATV’s was discussed. After discussing this, it was recommended that looking for two used ATV’s in good condition would suit the group and budget best. This item was tabled until next month.

A Licensed Training Provider (LTP) class for CPR will be coming up soon.
