Free Firewise Training! – September 16th

Registration for the next Firewise Virtual Workshop: Get Prepared, Stay Alive, Rebuild Your Life is now open! This no-charge session is scheduled for Tuesday, September 16 at 11am MDT.  The topic compliments September’s National Preparedness Month campaign; Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare  Please share this opportunity with the communities you work with.

The featured presenter is author and researcher Linda Masterson. Her book Surviving Wildfire – Get Prepared, Stay Alive, Rebuild Your Life is a comprehensive guide that will motivate residents to become better prepared; and provide professionals with information they can use in their outreach and education efforts. Masterson wrote the book after losing her home to a 2011 Colorado wildfire.  Her compelling story details the journey that she and her husband navigated during the evacuation, recovery and rebuilding phases.  She shares the importance of both mitigation and preparedness actions in a testimonial style tone.

The first 100 registrants for this session will receive a complimentary copy of the Surviving Wildfire Pocket Guide, a companion to Masterson’s Surviving Wildfire: Get Prepared, Stay Alive, Rebuild Your Life (A Handbook for Homeowners). Participation in the live workshop is limited and preregistration is required!

The Heritage Court

One of my favorite duties as Mayor of Carey happens this time of the year.  The Heritage Court honors women from all over Blaine County for their lifetime of contributions to their community.  In the past, I have had the privilege of escorting Jean Pyrah, Maxine Molyneux, Mary Peterson, and Mary Green for their coronations.  This year, I will have the honor of escorting Joyce Edwards.  A very long list of service to the community of Carey, including 35 years in 4H, make her a very worthy recipient of this honor.  Thanks Joyce!
