Brett Wuth, 2004/08/17 23:41 MST (via web): Janet reported that ACS certification would require us to always wear white cover-alls, an orange hard hat, and a red vest. She recommended that we not seek ACS certification, but get training through another organization. Janet will contact the RCMP to see if they could train us. The RCMP have plenty of experience with road blocks.

Brett Wuth, 2004/10/05 15:56 MST (via web): Janet has discussed Road Block training with the RCMP. They are concerned that if they train us, they may be liable if an injury occurs. We need to train for what we do, which isn't the full flagman job. We need to training for containment road blocks.

Brett Wuth, 2004/10/06 12:07 MST (via web): Janet is in discussion with RCMP Cpl Sorenson to have approximately 45 minute orientation on a meeting night. They will also discuss legal issues in gathering information about people passing through a stop.
