AKFAAST taking applications

The Alaska First Aid and Safety Team (AK FAAST) Camp is accepting applications for the 2011 summer camp. The camp, which aims at encouraging teens to consider careers as first responders, will be held in Anchorage in mid-July and will include activities with the Alaska State Troopers, Anchorage Fire Department, Learn-to-Return and Southcentral Foundation (SCF).

CIRI shareholder Tammy Ashley is actively involved in the co-organization the camp. Ashley, who keeps her emergency trauma technician certification current, says that her involvement with AK FAAST “is rooted in my interest in giving youth an opportunity to look at career options in healthcare, survival and safety.” SCF is a camp sponsor.

In 2010, six of the thirteen youth participants were CIRI shareholders or descendants. To learn more about AK FAAST call Tammy Ashley at (907) 729-4945.
