Fire Extinguishers!

Hi 

photo: SmartSignBrooklyn
everyone!

Not all of us have had the chance to use a fire extinguisher in real life, but these devices are important safety equipment.  Using them to put out small fires can save lives!

That being said, arranging training on how to use them properly can be challenging.

So, we thought we would revive a previous post from our team (employee) website that included a training video — click here to check out the video, and please  share with others!

Is there specific training you think would be helpful to have?  Let us know in the comments!

SPOTLIGHT: MANDT Training Week in Kelowna with Joel – Aug. 20-23

photo:
Community Connections is very proud to be offering the Mandt System training during the week of August 20-23, 2018, to our residential support workers and our contracted Home Share Providers in Kelowna.  Click here for Mandt Week info!  This training is presented by our very own certified Mandt Instructor, Joel Gunther (Service Coordinator).

We know that this is a time of year where there is lots to do outside, vacations happening, and travelling to visit family and friends.  So, to be as flexible as possible and accommodate as many Home Share Providers’ busy schedules as we can, Joel is offering two days for the “relational” skills training section (August 22nd and 23rd).  Home Share Providers would only need to attend one of those days, in order to complete the “relational” skills training.

If you are a CCSS Home Share Provider and interested in this training, contact Joel (250-491-2907) by FRIDAY, AUGUST 10th, to reserve a spot.

Joel is looking forward to meeting everyone during this exciting week of training!
