2015 Funding Priority | Amount Needed $1,750
Avalanche 1 training is very important for new emergency services staff who will operate in Mount Rainier’s avalanche-prone terrain. This grant proposal would pay for the cost of providing this vital training to a minimum of five (5) new staff members. This training improves the safety knowledge and safety skills of emergency services staff. In doing so, this same staff will be better able to provide those services to the public who rely on it. Promoting employee safety is a park management priority.
