Leadership Potter County Focus On Emergency Responders

September 7th, 2018 Comments off

An addition to the Leadership Potter County curriculum focusing on emergency responders and public safety was a success. LPC alumnus Will Hunt, who also serves as Potter County planning director, organized a First Responder Day. He laid the groundwork for class members to travel to multiple sites for demonstrations and an opportunity to meet informally with responders. Personnel from the Pa. State Police, Coudersport Volunteer Fire Dept., Coudersport Ambulance and Advanced Life Support, Mercy Flight and Coudersport Borough police responded to the LPC planning team’s invitation to participate.

“Students learned about basic safety measures as well as potential career and volunteer opportunities, and they gained a deeper appreciation for some of the people who selflessly serve the community,” Hunt said. “The committee hopes to have participation from some of the county’s other emergency responders for the 2019 program.” Leadership Potter County supports the development of future leaders with a focus on developing leadership potential and a greater awareness of local assets, opportunities and issues.
