The training, called the "Hamilton Branch Incident Drill," consisted of a day of classroom instruction at the Hamilton Branch Fire Station about effective communications within a "Unified Command Response" and possible response scenarios. The second day involved practicing deployment of containment equipment in case a toxic spill actually happened. This part of the training took place on the Feather River Canyon in the Belden area. Lena Kent, regional director public affairs for BNSF, noted that with a 99.9 percent success record, shipping by railway is probably the safest way to ship product, especially anything that might be considered hazardous. She, along with Lt. Joshua Nicholas of the CDFW, stressed that these types of training raise the level of preparedness for all the agencies that would ultimately be involved in case of an accident. .onMatters ' A weekly highlight of the programs of Plumas Unified School District and supported by the County Office of Education This is a reminder that Plumas Unified School District is still actively accepting families and individuals' disability information to input into the Plumas County Dispatch system. Please contact any Special Education teacher at any PUSD elementary school to sign up. In the event of an emergency, it's important that First Responders have as much information as possible to respond effectively and efficiently, When it comes to addressing emergencies with individuals on the Autism ' Spectrum and students and adults with intellectual or physical disabilities, it's of great importance to have this information in order to respond most appropriately. Dispatch can play a key role in helping to determine the proper staff and equipment needed to respond to an emergency. When First Responders are aware of the disabilities and deficits that are present in individuals prior to arriving at the scene, the emergency can be swiftly and adequately handled. For example, knowing that a person in danger may be nonverbal, or verbal with social deficits can be vital to help the First Responders know how to best address the situation. Unfortunately, in most cases dispatch only has information on a limited number of the disabled population, which includes the blind and elderly, In order to support a larger disabled population, PUSD is partnering with Plumas County Dispatch to collect adult's and children's From left to right: Dispatcher Zoe Stancer, Assistant Fire Chief Frank Carey, Patrol Commander Todd Johns, student Davis Friden, PUSD Education Specialist Jennifer Kimball, SELPA Director Laura Blesse. disability information to be logged and saved in the dispatch system.

Their goal is to enhance Plumas County's resources, awareness, and support for those on the Autism spectrum and those with other disabilities. Plumas County Dispatch is partnering with PUSD as a public service to the community and is more than happy to be given the information to input. In the future, Kimball hopes to also do trainings and workshops with First Responders to educate them on various mental and physical disabilities. To sign up families, parents, and community members are encouraged to contact Special Education Teachers at their local PUSD elementary school Information conected will pertain to any particular disability, including the participants name, birthday, address, type of disability, and the severity of the disability, along with any other relevant information, including behavioral triggers.
