Join Volunteer Coordinator Dan Watson for an introduction to Trail Safe! -- a series of online safety training videos which provide all core learning objectives found in NPS Operational Leadership. Trail Safe! is an opportunity for everyone to learn about the Human Factor of safety, covering topics such as Effective Leadership, Stress & Performance, Situational Awareness, Mission Analysis, and more. If your local safety program is looking for ways to share information at no cost, and without the logistical hassle of arranging travel and meeting venues, then Trail Safe! may be your answer. Toward the conclusion of the webinar, Dan Watson will review how you can receive a Trail Safe! “starter kit” and begin sharing this safety resource with your staff, partners, and volunteers
