First Quarter 2018 Training Classes

The First Quarter Training will be assigned in Target Solutions shortly.  Please ensure you attend and participate in the training classes, and make sure that you sign in on the roster in case there is an issue of attendance. We will continue with the Saturday classes in the schedule to help those that aren't able to attend the Wednesday night drills. Additionally, a third drill for the other on duty shift will occur on a separate day.  These will be either a repeat of a Wednesday night drill so others have an opportunity to attend important training or a standalone class that requires additional time.
