April 2023

PRI Family and Friends,


Another two sessions are in the books. We had a great time with
both of our 2023 Sessions. We had 65 attendees at each session and 
had several new classes this year that were well received and added so much

to the training experience. We also welcomed several new agencies 
and a number of new faces from our regular agencies. We
had beautiful weather for both sessions and the experiences shared
by everyone will last forever. A few of the new classes were the Caving Experience, Chainsaw Safety and Operation, Water Rescue and recognizing swimmers in distress, Human Trafficking and dealing with Large Mammals just to mention a few.

We look forward with great expectation for what might be in store for
2024. Your Board of Directors met in May to begin preparation for
next year’s Institutes. Please check the Website periodically for any
updates and the class agendas when they get confirmed along with
the session dates. (We are looking at January 7-12, 2024, for Session I
and March 24 – 29, 2024, for Session II.)


Remember word of mouth is our best advertisement so tell your
friends and other agencies in your area about us. As always if I can
be of any assistance to you in this or any other matter, please don’t
hesitate to call on me. Take care and please be safe out there!





John R. Byrd Sr.
Your Executive Director
