What goes on behind the scenes at a complex simulated emergency? On April 11, representatives and volunteers from Pondera, Teton, Glacier, Toole and Liberty counties along with the City of Conrad, participated in a sustained operations exercise to manage accountability issues.
The activation of a combined Emergency Coordination Center and Incident Command Post using the Incident Command System (ICS) was being tested.
As support for the incident, the team used ICS forms needed to track resources, either personnel or equipment, throughout the entire incident. Pondera County was the first of four exercises to be held in the region.
The Driver Education program at the high school is scheduled to begin the first week following the end of the school year.
Special parent meetings are scheduled for April 22 and 24. Meeting time both nights is 7 p.m. in the high school commons.
Parent(s) are required to attend one of the two sessions in order for the student to be “officially” enrolled.
Sessions will last a little over an hour each night. The purpose of the meetings will be to explain how the program will be administered and the role of the parent(s) in the traffic education process.
Parent involvement requirements and the Graduated Driver Licensing Program will also be reviewed.
For any additional information, contact supervisor Jim Carroll at the high school at 278-3285.
Mark your calendar for May 8, 10:30 a.m.
Inge Auerbacher, a Holocaust survivor will make a presentation of those horrible events that surrounded her life. The community event is open and free to the public and will take place in the Conrad High School Auditorium at 308 S. Illinois.
She was born in south-western Germany near the Black Forest, close to the borders of France and Switzerland.
In 1938, her father, a decorated soldier and winner of the Iron Cross medal from WW I, and her grandfather were arrested and sent to the Dachau Concentration Camp.
Eventually she was shipped off to Terezin, a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia.
This was a transit stop for many who were shipped on to other death camps, like Auschwitz.
