Description

[Jan 2014 Update: I've presented this training now about a dozen or so times and it lends itself well to different audiences; you can simply skip over or emphasize various parts; it can also be done in as little as about 5 hours.] This six module, one day workshop will cover the full range of snow and ice removal and control, including program development, planning, pre-season activities, in-season operations, post storm activities, and post season activities. It is designed so that all involved personnel can have a sound understanding of the fundamentals and a better appreciation for why others in the network are doing what they are doing. Plow operators, other equipment operators, road superintendents, supervisors, town managers, town clerks, and elected officials can all benefit from this one day of training. Even experienced veterans are invited, but we will try to coerce a story or two out of you to help the cause.
