Thursday, May 26, 2011 – A few spaces remain for CMAT’s training workshop and volunteer appreciation day being held on June 4th, 2011 in Vancouver.
The purpose of this day is to acknowledge and thank the participation of individuals involved in CMAT deployments, most recently in Japan. The event is being sponsored by Molson. CMAT will also take this opportunity to provide basic Search and Rescue orientation, engage CMAT members, and possibly recruit new volunteers.
Along with CMAT and IMAT members, members of the Burnaby Fire Department will attend to provide members with some basic Search and Rescue skills to better prepare members in the event deployed persons are caught in a collapse of a building and other related basic SAR skills.
The fee for attending is $50, which includes lunch, refreshments and a newly redesigned CMAT t-shirt. (Additional t-shirts and CMAT logo items will also be available for purchase).
In order to register for this workshop, please click the green donation button above and make a payment for $50. Enter “June 4th Training day” under “where would you like your donation to go?” A charitable tax receipt will be issued for $20.
