On Monday, July 11 a joint training event was held at Pleasant Prairie Elementary School. Pleasant Prairie Fire/Rescue, Police and Kenosha County EMS personnel along with members of the Kenosha Sheriff's Department Tactical Response Unit participated in an exercise on Rescue Task Force (RTF) technique. In both didactic and live scenarios these agencies learned approach and rescue management for active shooter and mass casualty events. Observers from northern Illinois, surrounding Kenosha locations, and Oak Creek provided insight and helped make the day quite a success. Infinity's own Ben Kessel, PA-C along with Pleasant Prairie Police Lieutenant Paul Marik designed and led this important drill. Ben is one of a select group of instructors nation-wide able to provide certification courses in tactical medicine to EMS providers. Plans are set to expand the training to the entire Kenosha County EMS System over the next six months under the medical direction of another Infinity provider, Ben Feinzimer, DO. Thank you to all who helped make the day a success!

[Latest Airdate: July 6, 2017] [Original Airdate: March 6, 2014] Chippewa Falls' roots are literally roots -- of the white pines that fed the world's largest lumber mill and put Chippewa Falls on the map. Well, the lumberjacks may be gone, but John learned very quickly that the hard working, harder playing character of Chippewa Falls is still alive and well. Know what else he learned? Leinenkugel's started here in 1867 to serve the thirsty lumberjacks. The supercomputer was invented here by Seymour Cray. The largest dog park and the second oldest zoo in Wisconsin both call this city home. And the Yellowstone Trail runs right through Chippewa Falls. Right? John was impressed, too. But as you probably know by now, John isn't most impressed by just the facts. It's the residents that put the smile on his face - and the knowledge that he didn't have to have a membership to get into the local supper club! As this episode shows, Chippewa Falls is not for members only -- it's for everybody! Episode #309

Recorded: Wednesday, August 24, 2016 In small museums, the staff wears many hats and have many jobs including the responsibility of caring for collections. It is a fundamental responsibility of museum management to support professional development and to make sure that all of their staff has knowledge of current standards and collection care practices. The staff should be offered training opportunities and encouraged to take advantage of internal training programs and mentoring support for all full-time staff, part-time staff, and volunteers. Security, facility and events staff, even though they do not handle objects, should also be trained in collections care techniques since they work in close proximity to collections, educate the public, and need to understand their role in the overall preventive conservation measures and requirements of the museum. How do you make sure your staff gets the training they need to do their jobs? The focus of this webinar is building professional development opportunities for the small museums staff and volunteers. Internal training programs might include developing a policy and procedure manual, physical training programs, topic specific topic lectures, and weekly and monthly meeting structures where training focus is emphasized and presented. External opportunities include developing multi-museum training programs, exchanges of staff with other regional museum of similar size and collection base, as well as attending specific training schools, workshops, webinars and other professional events as tight budget restraints of the museum allow. Training is not only for newly hired staff and volunteers, but also for senior staff who help with mentoring new staff and volunteers and to keep senior staff current with to existing and new policies and procedures for collections care. This webinar will provide you with proven, working scenarios that you can take on board and develop to fit the training specifics for your staff and collections. http://www.connectingtocollections.org/all-aboard-engineering-collections-care-training-for-small-museums/
