Welcome to Our New Members!

In October, we held our annual orientation for new members. This year we added 24 new people to our roster – 1 in Comms, 5 in Canine, 3 HazMat Specialists, 1 Logs Specialist, 4 Medical Specialists, 2 Medical Team Managers, 2 Planning Team Managers, 4 Rescue Specialists, 1 Structural Specialist and 1 Technical Search Specialist.

Well, hurricane season didn’t really turn out the way NOAA had predicted. There were several large storms, but they all took a hard right turn and did not make landfall.
NOAA’s prediction for our Michigan winter is now out. El Nino continues and both the northern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are warmer than usual, resulting in the prediction of 40%-50% warmer than normal temperatures here and the likelihood of below normal precipitation.

Canine, Technical Search and Search Team Management came together to perform annual maintenance on the agility equipment at Operating Engineers and to build some new props for the dogs to navigate!
