On closing my term as President I also want stress the importance of physical fitness. So much of want we do and how well we perform during a mission depends on our level of fitness. Each of us needs to have a fitness program that increases our strength, agility, flexibility and endurance. Aerobic exercise like jogging, walking , biking, hiking and swimming are good exercises that prepare us for the strenuous activities we are performing on missions. And don't forget to do some upper body strength training. By being in good physical condition we can avoid becoming fatigued too early into the mission, keep mentally alert, and prevent injury, which means we are providing better service to the lost or injured subject.
See you out there.

Thanks to everyone who showed up for the Land Navigation and Night Training in November.
There is only one training opportunity remaining for the year. December 12th, at 9:00 a.m. there will be a Litter Handling Training at Three Gun Springs Trailhead.
It has been a pleasure being your training officer this year. I wish everyone a great holiday season!
If you have any questions concerning training events please call me at home or on my cellular phone.
