I've previously volunteered for an ARES group in Washington state (Snohomish County ACS/ARES) where I was able to learn a lot and loved working with everyone. I use to volunteer in support of marathons and road bike races. After moving to the Conifer area I volunteered for a while with Colorado 4x4 SAR-ES where I took most of my ICS courses as well as medical/survival/recovery training.
I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and getting involved!
I am not a spotter currently. I missed the training this year being too busy with Colorado 4x4. I am looking forward to taking the courses next springtime though! I grew up over in Nebraska and have always been fascinated with thunderstorms and what makes them tick.
