Police conduct rapid response training for high school students

The Steamboat Springs Police Department, along with local emergency services including Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue, will be conducting a series of active shooter/threat response training exercises at the Steamboat Springs High School during the week of July 9 to 13.

The community will see a large presence of law enforcement agencies, police officers as well as fire and EMS personnel and vehicles in and around the high school throughout the week.  The all-day training will take place at the Steamboat Springs High School, 45 Maple St. and runs daily from Monday, July 9 through Friday, July 13.

Under the direction of lead instructor, Sergeant Jeff Wilson, the Rapid And Immediate Deployment group, composed of members of the Steamboat Springs Police Department, Routt County Sheriff’s Office and other area law enforcement agencies will conduct several classroom sessions and a number of real-time, interagency, live exercises. Scenarios will span small and large situations including triage and trauma care conditions.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Beginning Monday, July 9, Duckels will set up temporary erosion and traffic control devices, remove sections of concrete medians near the Gondola Transit Center and The Steamboat Grand and install a temporary exit from The Steamboat Grand. This will be finalized before closing the Phase I work zone to traffic, likely that same week.
