This avalanche awareness and rescue training is mandatory for anyone who will be working in, or traveling through the Tioga Road corridor after plowing operations begin May 3rd 2010, until it is opened to administrative traffic (at this point it’s impossible to know when that will be). Space is limited, and supervisors are urged to send only personnel who will need to be on the road before it is opened for administrative traffic. All training requests must be submitted to Erin Anders via email (or hard copy memo) sent or forwarded by your supervisor, no later than March 26, 2010. We are scheduled for three 8 hour (one day) avalanche training refreshers, and one 16 hour (two day) initial avalanche training. Employees who have never attended the basic 16 hour training and employees who have attended the 16 hour training prior to spring 2007, but have not attended a refresher since that date will be required to attend the 16 hour initial avalanche training in order to be permitted on the road between Tioga Pass and Crane Flat. Employees who have attended either the 16 hour initial, or the 8 hour refresher training in the past three years (2007, 2008, 2009), are only required to attend the 8 hour refresher to be permitted on the road between Tioga Pass and Crane Flat. Additionally any employee that in the last three years has successfully completed a Level I Avalanche course, taught by a qualified instructor will only be required to attend the refresher (documentation required).
