08. New Business
  • Pictures of Volunteers in out new shirts for website (as other county departments do).  Shawn has volunteered to be our photographer (He does photography as a business)
  • Subject Matter Experts Volunteers (SMEs) - Propose a title for volunteers that help us in specific areas but not necessarily be physically present to attend all meetings.  i.e. John Harlan (Law Enforcement) and JT Morgenthien (Communications), to include radios, towers, network communications, Fiber optics, etc), in the future maybe an accountant (treasurer), training co-coordinator, (who else?).
  • 2018 Fireworks Show, needs, sponsors, volunteers needed, etc. Is there a separate committee for the fireworks show?
  • Earth Day Community Weekend - Yearly event.  I would like to propose a yearly event for the CDF&R.  In 2018 Earth Day is Sunday April 22.  Thinking of Saturday April 21 for a community help spring clean the trucks and department.  Just a thought.
  • Training - Would like to post a training schedule for the year.  Maybe we need a training co-ordinator for our monthly training.  Anyone like to volunteer?  Tom will be looking to see if he can convert all of our CD/DVD training to on-line.
